Children and HIV

Journal Article (Chapter)

The Yale Child Study Center, through its Program for HIV-Affected Children and Families, has developed a community-based approach to the mental health care of children and families beset by HIV/AIDS. This chapter explores the unique opportunities inherent in providing mental health care to HIVinfected and HIV-affected children using non-traditional techniques. The chapter begins by briefly providing a history of HIV-affected children on a national level, followed by a detailed discussion of the Program for HIVAffected Children and Families, including the issues faced by these children and their families. Two case vignettes illustrate the need and challenges of home-based work with HIV-affected children.
