Other Abstract

As of 2013, an estimated 17.7 million children worldwide had lost one or both parents to AIDS, with the majority living in resource-poor settings (UNICEF, 2015). Furt hermore, there are millions of children whose parents are living with HIV/AIDS, given that 36.9 million people were living with the condition at the end of 2014 (WHO, 2015). With the introduction of antiretroviral therapy (ART), HIV in resource-rich regions is slowly becoming a chronic disease. However, there is a considerable treatment gap in resource-limited settings, with only 58% of treatment eligible adults receiving appropriate therapy (UNAIDS, 2012). Th e deleterious eff ects of HIV/AIDS, however, are not limited to people living with the virus; they also extend to their family members, especially their children. Parental HIV/AIDS-related illness and deaths have far-reaching and lasting consequences on children’s physical and psychosocial well-being. How to provide developmentally and culturally appropriate psychosocial support, alongside interventions to promote the well-being of these children, remains a signifi cant social and global health concern.
