Childhood Education, v92 n6 p465-469 2016
Healthy psychosocial development during childhood is a key determinant to the future well-being of all individuals. In many areas of Africa, demand for psychosocial support continues to grow in response to the increasing number of children left orphaned as a result of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. These orphans face various challenges and yet, in most cases, they lack access to basic psychological provisions necessary for their continued survival and mental well-being. This article examines the psychosocial support provisions needed by orphans to ensure positive outcomes.
