Abstract

This study examined the expressed needs of 150 care-givers of HIV- infected children. The authors assessed the frequency of reported needs and examined the effect of variables that may influence them. The variables include: the caregiver's relationship to the child, their HIV-status, and race, the age of the child, the route of transmission, and the child's awareness of their own HIV diagnosis. The study delineates the different needs articulated by caregivers for the HIV-infected children at three different developmental stages, and by the caregivers' HIV-status and relationship to the children. The most urgent needs found were for mental health services and health education. The age of the child, the parent's HIV status, and the child's awareness of his or her diagnosis had the most impact on the types of services caregivers requested.
