Six years ago, the World Bank created the Inspection Panel, an independent mechanism to respond to claims by those whom the Bank intends to help the most, inhabitants of developing countries, if they believe they are being adversely affected by projects funded by the Bank.

Addressing political, economic and social reconstruction, the report examines how armed conflicts have influenced women's lives, how women in different war-affected countries have responded to the challenges and changes induced by war, and how external actors have attempted to address women's concerns in post-war situations.

This report is meant to shed light on the circumstances of children affected by the AIDS epidemic and to encourage action.--I
