This ground-breaking book focuses on the experiences and perspectives of children that are caring for a parent with HIV in the global North and South. Drawing on original research data, this book presents a unique insight into the similarities and differences in children's experiences across diverse socio-economic, cultural and welfare contexts. This book makes a significant contribution to the growing research evidence on children with caring responsibilities ('young carers') and the impacts of HIV/AIDS on families globally. It examines the impacts of caregiving within families affected by HIV/AIDS; children's and families' resilience; the factors influencing whether children become involved in care work; and local and global policy responses. Additionally, it provides the accounts of parents living with HIV and service providers working with families. This book will be of interest to policymakers and practitioners in HIV/AIDS, and to researchers, academics and students concerned with international development; social policy; childhood and youth studies; social work; health and social care; education; children's services; and, nursing and palliative care.
