ew of Two Studies on African Orphans 2
An 11 page paper reviewing “Approaches to caring, essential elements for a quality service and cost-effectiveness in South Africa” and “Policy implications of the inadequate support systems for orphans in Western Kenya” for the purpose of evaluating their effectiveness in informing policy-making changes in sub-Saharan Africa. The focus is dealing with the exponentially-increasing numbers of AIDS-orphaned children. Traditionally, family units have cared for orphans, but their numbers are so high that they threaten to swamp that informal system. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
