CHILD POVERTY and HIV

For HM Government:
Child poverty strategy 2014-17: a consultation
CAPS Contact:
John Thornhill

For Full Report See Attached
 In summary
CAPS emphasises the following specific points:
 Household income is key to understanding child poverty.
 Income measures for child poverty should reflect wider living costs.
 The impact of welfare reform measures should be considered in any assessment of
child poverty.
 Any understanding of child poverty must always take account of the many complex
factors that contribute to and are characteristic of childhood poverty. These include
health conditions of household members; existence or lack of networks of wider
social support; asylum and immigration status; employability; education and
regional poverty.
 Poor housing is a major factor in our understanding of childhood disadvantage.
 For many reasons, where a person is living with HIV/AIDS in a household, this can
have a major impact on child poverty. Government strategy must take account of
the high correlation between HIV and poverty.
