The nature of the HIV epidemic in the UK is changing with the increasing number of infected women and children.
This recent onset means that there are few data about the specific problems of HIV in families.
This study examines current issues in service provision to HIV infected children and their families at an inner-London teaching hospital.
A sample of ten families were interviewed, from a caseload of approximately 100 HIV-positive children.
Of the ten children, seven were under the age of 5 years.
All the children were vertical transmissions and six of the mothers were from Sub-Saharan Africa.
