Abstract: Memory work is becoming a widespread community approach in the reduction of stigma and discrimination and planning for children’s future in communities affected by AIDS, principally in Africa. The first memory project was started by the National Community of Women Living with HIV and AIDS in Uganda (NACWOLA) in 1997. Their initial training for parents and children took place in 1998. At the time, the project targeted women living with HIV and AIDS and their children. However, after several years the decision was taken to include the fathers and husbands.
