This study sets out to assess the impact of an adult HIV/AIDS-related death on the household in general and children in particular. A comparative study of the three types of household was conducted in the Sangli district. The study found that where an active adult dies from HIV/AIDS, there is a severe negative effect on the household.This study clearly points out a need for a comprehensive response to HIV/AIDS, which includes efforts to reduce discrimination at all levels.
