Abstract: The HIV/AIDS epidemic is eroding households' capacities to produce and purchase food, it depletes their assets, and exhausts social safety nets. At the same time, hunger is forcing many people into increasingly high-risk survival strategies (including the shift to subsistence farming or low input farming, migration and even prostitution). This KIT special will focus on the effects of AIDS on (African) rural households to be able to at least limit the extent of this vast topic.
