This book focuses on the issues encountered by children and young people who are living with HIV/AIDS. It examines their lived experiences associated with HIV/AIDS, and studies groups of children and youngsters from around the globe. Connecting empirical information with real-life situations, the book brings together results from empirical research that relates to these children and young people. Its chapters can be used as evidence for health care providers to implement socially and culturally appropriate services to assist individuals and groups of children and young people who are living with HIV/AIDS in many societies.  Many of these young people are from the most marginalized and vulnerable groups; and many have been orphaned by the death of their HIV-positive parents. Marginalized young people such as refugees, migrants and street children are most at risk due to the use of illicit drugs, their exposure to unprotected sex (in exchange for food, money and protection), and stigma associated with their marginalized lives. The impact that HIV/AIDS has on the opportunities for these young people to be able to lead healthy adult lives is considerable. This book gives a voice to these children and young people and advances our understanding of their lived experiences and needs.

Preface: 

Children and young people are at the center of HIV/AIDS epidemic. In 2014,  UNAIDS reported that some 36.9 million (34.3–41.4 million) people were living  with HIV. Every day, around 7000 persons become infected with HIV and 5000  persons die from AIDS, due mostly to lack of access to HIV prevention, care, and  treatment services. Globally, AIDS-related illnesses remain a leading cause of  death. The epidemic has spared no country in the world, although in some countries  prevalence rates are still low.  HIV/AIDS have caused a “social assault” on the lives of children and young  people in the world. Chapters in this volume attest to this. Many have been orphaned  by the death of their HIV-positive parents. Young people, according to the United  Nations, are “at the center of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.” Many young people also  bear the burden of caring for family members living with HIV/AIDS. Marginalized  young people such as refugees, migrants, street children, and those who have been  seen to have transgressed their gender norms (e.g., MSA, lesbians, bisexual, gays  and transgender individuals) are most at risk due to the use of illicit drugs, their  exposure to unprotected sex (in exchange for food, money and protection), and  stigma associated with their marginalized lives. Worldwide, we have witnessed the  impact that HIV/AIDS has on the opportunities for these young people to be able to  lead healthy adult lives. It is crucial that the voices of these children and young  people are heard, and their lived experiences and needs are better understood by  health and social care providers, as well as researchers in the fi eld so that culturally  sensitive health and social care can be implemented for them.  The focus of this book is on the issues that these children and young people face  and their lived experiences associated with HIV/AIDS (both directly and indirectly)  throughout different parts of the globe. Chapters in this volume indeed affi rm the  need for us (health-care providers, researchers, and policymakers) to understand  and better respond to the social conditions that dictate the health and well-being of  children and young people living with HIV/AIDS.
