Committed to Caring: Older Women and HIV & AIDS in Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam
HelpAge International, Chiang Mai, 2007, 44 pp

Reproduced with the kind permisison of HelpAge International.


"This report highlights the role of older women as carers, and the impact of that role, in the context of the HIV epidemic, with reference to three Asian countries: Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam. While each country has made commendable progress in tackling different elements of their respective epidemics, the response to older women affected by HIV and AIDS, particularly as carers, has been inadequate. The extent to which governments and organisations working on HIV and AIDS in each country recognise and address their situation merits greater scrutiny. Approaches and recommendations to increase support for older women carers and strengthen their contribution in the future will also be presented."
