This chapter focuses on the support needs of children and young people who care for parents with HIV, and discusses local and global strategies and responses. It also discusses the implications of young people's caring roles for the needs and requirements for support of families affected by HIV/AIDS. The chapter examines the perspectives of young people, parents, and service providers on their support needs in Tanzania and the UK. It discusses service providers' views of the development of services and support for this hidden group of young people and their suggested improvements to existing service provision. The chapter explores debates about targeting support for children caring for parents/relatives with HIV, issues of disclosure of HIV status for accessing services, and providers's views on whether efforts should be focused on preventing children being drawn into caring roles or on responding to children's support needs once they have taken on caring responsibilities.
