(118) The growing number of home-based care programmes could play a role in terms of children affected by HIV/AIDS. Fieldworkers for all home-based care programmes need to be trained to recognise the problems children face in HIV/AIDS-affected households, and link them up with the necessary assistance services. Government must find ways to work together with and support – financially and otherwise – the full range of home-based programmes. Lead institution: DrSD*; Secondary institutions: DPLG, LG, DH, NGOs. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once-off cost: moderate. Recurrent cost: moderate. Time line: to be introduced within one year of adoption of policy. (119) The government has expressed a commitment to providing anti-retrovirals beyond mother-to-child-prevention and has recently completed a costing study. Provision of anti-retrovirals to adults to promote adult well-being and longer life would reduce the number of HIV/AIDS orphans, and prolong the period during which caregivers were healthy and could earn income and prevent children needing to work. The implementation of an extended programme around provision of anti-retrovirals thus needs to be speeded up as much as possible. Lead institution: DH. (116) The early detection of abnormal health states caused through work so as to implement early and more effective treatment. Lead institution: DH. Secondary institutions: DL. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once off cost: minimal. Recurrent cost: nil. Time line: within two years of adoption of policy. (130) A plan should be drafted for effective cooperation between DHA, SAPS, DH and the education departments, to ensure that child refugees are not arrested, are handled in accordance with existing laws and regulations, and are not denied access to school and health care services.

(15) A serious problem with the CSG is that birth certificates and ID documents are required to access the grant. Ways need to be found urgently around this problem while limiting the scope for corruption, as it is children and their caregivers in rural and poorer areas who usually lack this documentation. Lead institution: DHA*. Secondary institution: DrSD*. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Recurrent cost: Costs depend on solution, but probably moderate recurrent costs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
