Crying for Our Elders

Kristen E. Cheney

University of Chicago Press

This chapter introduces the concept of ‘the post-ARV generation’ through a contextual analysis of the history of the HIV-AIDS pandemic in Africa – Uganda specifically – and how that shaped the childhood experiences of those born around the time that prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) and antiretroviral treatment (ART) became available. The chapter also provides an account of the humanitarian and development aid responses to AIDS orphanhood, led primarily by NGOs and CBOs and then taken up by national governments and INGOs such as UNICEF and PEPFAR. The chapter considers how each of these developments have helped or hurt children orphaned by AIDS and the aim to create an ‘AIDS-free generation’.

Keywords:   AIDS-free generation, antiretroviral treatment, antiretorvirals, HIV, orphans, post-ARV generation, PEPFAR, prevention of mother-to-child transmission, Uganda, UNICEF, AIDS
