    For children infected and affected by the epidemic, HIV is not only a medical experience. It is also a social and emotional experience that profoundly affects their lives and their futures. The CLWHA project provide education and medical support to 75 children orphaned and made vulnerable by HIV/AID. This contributes to the achievement of an AIDS-free generation by responding to the social (including economic) and emotional consequences of the disease on children, their families, and communities that support them. The CLWHA project addresses discrimination and stigma on varying levels: in the home setting through outreach, at school through teacher training and at the hospital through seminars about healthy living and healthy choices.
