This study provides a qualitative analysis of the circumstances and consequences of parental caregiving to adult children with AIDS in Thailand. The analysis is based on 20 open-ended interviews, mainly with parents of an adult son or daughter who died of AIDS within the few prior years. The results reveal the circumstances that lead to parental caregiving, the tasks involved and the stress, and the consequences for their emotional, social and economic well-being.
