This chapter discusses young people's everyday caring responsibilities within households affected by HIV/AIDS in both the global North and South. It highlights similarities and differences between children's experiences within two divergent socioeconomic and welfare contexts. The chapter discusses the range of support that children provide for their parents/relatives, and explores gendered and temporal aspects of children's care work, drawing on young people's narratives, diaries, drawings, and photographs of their daily routines and caring responsibilities.

Keywords:   HIV/AIDS, global North, children's experiences, welfare context, children's care work
