Cape Verde is a former Portuguese colony, comprises ten islands and five islets in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of west Africa. No statistics are available on the incidence of HIV/AIDS among children and young people. According to UNICEF there may be a link between the high rates of teenage pregnancy, the incidence of sexually transmitted infections and the potential spread of HIV/AIDS.

SOS Children in Cape Verde is developing a programme to prevent abandonment of children, especially street children This includes working with local organisations and government departments to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.
