Relationship Between Family Economic Resources, Psychosocial Well-being & Educational Preferences of AIDS-Orphaned Children

This study examines the relationship between economic resources, psychosocial well-being, and educational preferences of 1,410 AIDS-orphaned children in southern Uganda. These findings suggest that the focus for care and support of orphaned children should not be limited to addressing their psychosocial needs. Addressing the economic needs of the households in which orphaned children live is equally important. Both are important areas of work for the social service workforce.
