It summarizes the dynamics of the epidemic in two case-study countries, Tanzania and the UK, and discusses key themes emerging from the literature on the impacts of HIV and AIDS on children and families globally. The chapter focuses on the diverse ways that children and families are affected by HIV and AIDS at the household level. It explores the embodied experiences of people living with HIV and AIDS and the particular dynamics of parenting in this context.
