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.

The paper presents four scenarios, which differ for illness severity and ART availability, and discusses how memory work can adapt to suit changing needs
