The needs and rights of children affected by AIDS will continue to be a UK priority when 'Taking Action', the UK strategy for tackling HIV and AIDS in the developing world, is published later this year. It will also be a focus of high-level discussion at the forthcoming Global Partners forum on children affected by AIDS.

We are grateful to a number of organisations, including the Working Group on Orphans and Vulnerable Children of the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development, for their supportive engagement in the work that is under way to update the strategy.
