This research dissertation was undertaken to increase knowledge of the effects of AIDS related adult mortality on family structures in Namibia. Previous research focused mainly on very specific effects like food security or the needs of OVCs. This research includes changes in family size, form, composition, economic activities and distribution of the care burden as a result of AIDS related adult morbidity and mortality. The key findings were that AIDS mortality intersects with other social factors to bring about changes in family structures.
