Children affected by HIV/AIDS are at high risk for multiple placements
as the adults in their lives are often too incapacitated to provide
stable, consistent care for them. This article provides a historical
overview of child caregiving, describes the complex needs of HIV/AIDS
affected children and their relative caregivers, usually grandparents,
and suggests that with necessary supports, placement with relatives can
be a thoughtful, realistic option for permanency.
