Academic achievement and psychosocial needs of children affected by or infected with HIV/AIDS


Key take-home messages
  • There is very little research that directly examines the long-term academic achievement or the psychosocial needs of children affected by HIV.
  • Of the studies that do exist on the topic, very few are scientifically rigorous or comprehensive enough to be included in systematic reviews in this area.
  • There is some evidence that children affected by HIV may have increased negative educational outcomes.
  • Further research on the unique psychosocial and education support needs of children affected by HIV is needed.
