|Samenvatting||A livelihood comprises of the capabilities, assets and activities required for people’s means of living. Livelihoods can be destroyed by the impact of HIV/AIDS when economically active people succumb to the disease and die. Consequently, children drop out of school to cultivate the land and care for ill parents. This hampers the children’s ability to acquire skills that could make them employable in the formal sector. To pay for medicines, hospital care or other expenses due to HIV/AIDS, a family may sell stocks of food, land or other property, farming tools, or send their sons and daughters to the city to find work. External mainstreaming of HIV/AIDS in livelihoods programmes is a strategy aimed at reducing the impact of AIDS on communities and households.|
