The Children of Africa Confront AIDS · From Vulnerability to Possibility
Edited by Arvind Singhal and Steve Howard

The Children of Africa Confront AIDS depicts the reality of how African children deal with the AIDS epidemic, and how the discourse of their vulnerability affects acts of coping and courage. It describes HIV/AIDS in its macro context of the continent's democratization movements and in its national contexts of civil conflict, rural poverty, youth organizations, and agencies working on the ground.

“A stellar contribution in the best tradition of applied social science while providing a bridgehead into the courageous world of the African orphan.”

Philip L. Kilbride, Africa Today
