Crying for Our Elders

Kristen E. Cheney

University of Chicago Press

Despite the evolution of policy responses to AIDS orphanhood, it continues to be constructed in ways that misidentify or even obscure the true causes of orphan suffering—often with adverse, long-term consequences. This chapter chronicles recent developments that continue to challenge the lives and livelihoods of the post-ARV generation, including increases in the HIV prevalence rate—especially amongst young people—and failures in AIDS education. Though the lives and livelihoods of the post-ARV generation still hang in the balance of local and international policy and politics based on problematic constructions of AIDS orphanhood, young people report a sense of openness around HIV/AIDS and hope for the future.
