Description: Since anti-retroviral (ARV) treatment for HIV has become widely available in Tanzania and other low resource settings, many more children living with HIV (CLWH) are surviving into adolescence and adulthood. As this population enters the sexual and reproductive phase of their lives with HIV, it is imperative to ensure that they receive education and messaging about HIV and support that will enable them to prevent the transmission of HIV to future partners and children and remain healthy themselves. This study sought to explore the sources of communication and messages that CLWH receive in the rural Usangu area of Mbarali District, Mbeya Region, Tanzania and the implications of children’s interpretations of these messages for their future behaviour.
