Summary

The purpose of these booklets is to support parents as they discuss HIV with their HIV-infected children and eventually to support disclosure of HIV status to the child. In the original suite of materials there were three booklets: 1) How to Keep Healthy , developed to be used with children who are 2 or 3 to 6 years of age; 2) Knowing about Myself , developed to be used with children from about 6 years of age to 10 or 12 years of age, depending on the child’s maturity; 3) Living a Life of Health , developed to be used with children over 9 years of age, depending on the maturity of the child, who know their HIV diagnosis. These booklets were each accompanied by a set of cue cards for health-care providers, which offer guidance on supporting caregivers to discuss HIV with their HIV-infected children and how to use the booklets. Following an evaluation in 2011, these documents were updated and augmented with a 4th booklet, Teen Talk .
