Children and young people are affected by HIV usually in two ways; either they have the virus or a parent or family member has the virus. Whatever the case, families will want to ensure they get the right health care and support. This paper will give an overview of key issues affecting families affected by HIV, HIV support services and how voluntary and community sector organisations can work to support families in this situation.
