'Care needed' for Aids children

Via:BBC
"Millions of children whose mothers live with HIV/Aids are not receiving enough long-term care and support, says a new UK charity report.

"Up to nine million children in Africa have lost their mothers to HIV/Aids, Save the Children found. The charity called for new efforts to improve care and support for children who lose one or both parents. Many children are compelled to care for their sick mothers, the charity said, missing school to earn money instead. "

"Up to 90% of 19 million women living with HIV/Aids around the world are mothers, it said. In the countries worst hit by Aids, children are often left to care for their younger siblings, or their grandparents take the role of the deceased parents."
