This checklist for "Why, Where and How to Coordinate HIV and Child Protection Policy and Programming" was developed in response to the call from practitioners in sub-Saharan Africa for some practical guidance on how to link HIV and child protection policy and programming. There is a strong, and growing, body of evidence to show that achieving an AIDS-free generation depends on protecting children from abuse, violence, exploitation and neglect, and vice versa.
