This chapter addresses the nature and evolution of responsibility toward children affected by AIDS. It contains a short historical account of responses to the epidemic, including those of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), states, and intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), emphasizing how families and communities cope with the disease. It concludes with some thoughts on the growing role and assumption of responsibilities by states and the need for, and consequences of, external financing.

Keywords:   HIV/AIDS, children, responsibility, families, communities, nongovernmental organizations, intergovernmental organizations, states, development assistance
