    Combating child labour and HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa - A review of policies, programmes, and projects in South Africa, the United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia to identify good practices. Paper No. 1

    01 January 2002

    This report covers these linkages between the HIV/AIDS pandemic and child labour in South Africa, the United Republic of Tanzania, and Zambia. It complements Rapid Assessments in these countries to gather qualitative data on the links between child labour and HIV/AIDS. Significant efforts are being made in the three African countries to understand and respond to the linkage, or at least to one component of the relationship. This review presents many examples of both response models and specific examples of responses to both HIV/AIDS and child labour. The ability to learn from and expand “good practices” depends critically on more focused government attention to the pandemic and its impact on children, including the stigma and discrimination they face.

    Contributing to the fight against HIV/AIDS within the informal economy: The existing and potential role of decentralized systems of social protection.

    01 January 2002

    This paper describes efforts being developed by the ILO to strengthen the capacity of groups of workers and their families, particularly those in the informal economy, to organize action for the prevention of HIV/AIDS and for the care of those affected by HIV/AIDS. In line with one of the major recommendations emanating from UNGASS, the approach is grounded in communities’ activities and mobilization, to enable them to rise to the challenge of HIV/AIDS. The approach builds on the extensive experience gained by ILO/STEP and its development partners in exploring the potential of decentralized systems such as micro-insurance to extend coverage of social protection in health.
