HIV, Human Rights and Children

HIV/AIDS impacts so heavily on the lives of all children that it affects all their rights - civil, political, economic, social and cultural and children who are infected or directly affected by HIV/AIDS may find themselves at a double disadvantage - experiencing discrimination on the basis of both their social and economic marginalization and their or their parents’, HIV status. Violence and abuse can increase the risk of children becoming HIV-infected.
