What is the impact of HIV/AIDS on women caregivers in situations of extreme poverty in India? What happens when HIV/AIDS enters the home? What are the different dimensions of care needed by positive persons? What interventions can reduce the burden of care and improve the quality of life of those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS? Who should provide that care? How can we best use the funds allocated to the fight against HIV by governments, donors and communities, so that they translate into access to better medical, nutritional, financial, emotional and physical care for positive persons and their carers? These are some of the questions that this paper tries to address.
