MORGAN, Jonathan
June 2004

Expand view

Attempts to explore whether, following the introduction of antiretroviral treatment and the consequent significant reduction of AIDS mortality, memory work is still relevant to people living with HIV/AIDS. Traditional memory work focused on legacy for orphans, succession planning and preparation for death and bereavement. In ARV contexts the emphasis has shifted to assisting people with HIV/AIDS to live positively and plan for the future. The paper presents four scenarios, which differ for illness severity and ART availability, and discusses how memory work can adapt to suit changing needs
