Many young people are affected by HIV/AIDS in their communities, and have to take on adult responsibilities and care for others in their families. This book is intended to help these young people to care for others, while protecting and caring for themselves at the same time. "HIV/AIDS Action Readers" aim to promote good health practice through extensive reading. They are designed to help young people to develop the knowledge, attitudes, self-esteem and skills needed to manage their relationships safely and happily, and to cope better with the crisis of HIV and AIDS, which is affecting all our communities today. "HIV/AIDS Action Readers" are suitable for use across the curriculum: in literacy, social studies and science classes as well as in after-school or community clubs.
