This issue reviews seven of the twelve papers from the recently published special issue in the African Journal of AIDS Research on resilience and coping strategies of HIV-affected children in sub-Saharan Africa. These qualitative studies show a neglected perspective on the suffering and hardship experienced by children affected by HIV and AIDS in the region, highlighting the ways in which children can participate actively in addressing and improving the difficult challenges they face. Despite serious methodological shortcomings in some of the studies, the papers as a whole argue that resilience shown by children is the outcome of both their agency and active participation, as well as support they receive in their social environments.

The creation of the BCTR in 2011 represents a consolidation and expansion of programs and resources previously housed in the Family Life Development Center and the Bronfenbrenner Life Course Center.

The Center will foster research to understand and discover solutions to human problems across multiple levels of analysis (individual, interpersonal, community, organizational, governmental), as well as to identify, evaluate, and disseminate evidence-based and cost-efficient practices and programs. The BCTR will also focus on research that informs policy issues and debates. Further, the Center will engage stakeholders at the local, state, and national levels in more effective partnerships with CHE researchers. In these efforts, the Center responds to the call in the University Strategic Plan to “strongly connect extension and outreach to on-campus research and educational strengths.”
