Sorrow makes Children of us all: A Literature Review on the Psycho-Social Impact of HIV/AIDs on Children

Year: 2003
Working paper number: 047
Author: Stein, Jo
Unit: ASRU
Abstract:

This review describes the available research literature regarding the impact of HIV/AIDS on children, who are often referred to as OVCs (orphans and vulnerable children). It draws on the academic literature, including both published and unpublished research papers, books and reports regarding children who have a parent living with, or has died of, HIV/AIDS. The review focuses predominantly on African research. Children who are themselves infected with HIV are not covered in this review. Clearly, children with HIV/AIDS have unique needs and challenges which warrant separate consideration.
