September 2000

Expand view

This is one of the good practice series produced by the Uganda Network of AIDS Service Organisations (UNASO), and provides a useful summary of the issues around counselling children affected by HIV/AIDS, such as the need to develop a rapport with children, issues around disclosure of HIV status to children and indicators that children may be suffering distress or are in difficult circumstances. The content draws on the practical experience of a number of organisations in Uganda which are working in this area. The issue also provides practical suggestions for working with children, such as the use of drawing, play and drama, as well as a summary of the Memory Book Project, pioneered by National Community of Women living with HIV/AIDS in Uganda (NACWOLA)
