UNICEF and EPRI have launched on an operational research programme to explore the extent to which national social protection programmes are responding to the needs of individuals and households affected by HIV and AIDS.

We are excited to announce that this collaboration has resulted in UNICEF’s publication of the report HIV-sensitive Social Protection: State of the Evidence 2012 in sub-Saharan Africa, written by EPRI researchers. The report can be accessed on UNICEF’s website:
