From the Publisher"A Generation at Risk makes a huge contribution to our understanding of the impact of the HIV epidemic upon children. The book examines clearly and concisely the effect on children's lives in developed and developing countries. The authors rightly point out that children were neglected in early discussions on the epidemic. ... It is a 'must read' for those in the influence and enabling arenas, including nongovernmental organizations and ministries of health and education, who are making policy decisions on affected children's behalf."
Journal of the American Medical Association“
This book's editors and contributors address the growing problem of children affected by HIV/AIDS. With a focus on childhood rights, strengthening household income, international policy, and research priorities, this book will be useful to advanced students and scholars.”
“A highly recommended contribution to the literature for those seeking to understand more clearly the needs that children, families and communities face because of HIV and AIDS, and to develop more effective ways to assist them.”

"This book has inspired me and will inspire those who read it to do everything in their power to advocate for children affected worldwide by HIV—ideally, so that they are not orphaned, by advocating for their mothers to have access to antiretroviral medication, but for those who are orphaned, for a strong, well-resourced support mechanism within the educational system. I highly recommend A Generation at Risk for doctors, nurses, and social workers who work with families affected by HIV. It is a "must read" for those in the influence and enabling arenas, including nongovernmental organizations and ministries of health and education, who are making policy decisions on affected children's behalf."
