African families and AIDS: context, reactions and potential interventions.

Author information

  • 1Health Transition Centre, NCEPH, ANU, Canberra, Australia.


This paper reviews publications and research reports on how sub-Saharan African families have been affected by, and reacted to, the AIDS epidemic. The nature of the African family and its variation across the regions is shown to be basic to both an understanding of how the epidemic spread and of its impact. The volume of good social science research undertaken until now on the disease in Africa is shown to be extremely small relative to the need.
