Abstract

Currently, South Africa has an estimated 5,2 million abandoned children in need of care. Facing the highest rate of deaths worldwide from HIV/AIDS, and as a developing country, many children are left in need of care. The current article considers the status of alternative care in South Africa in light of the State’s ability to provide appropriate alternative care for those in need thereof.
