In 2003 alone, HIV/AIDS‐associated illnesses caused the deaths of approximately 2.9 million people worldwide, including an estimated 490,000 children younger than 15 years (UNAIDS 2004). No need to say that massive interventions are needed in order to ease the burden for the families and countries affected. Individuals, institutions, organisations and governments have different and supplementing capacities to assist within their own field of operations. This report hence aims at giving the social partners in the tobacco sector input into an action plan for the reduction in child labour on the background of poverty and the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Sub‐Saharan Africa.
