Download (1.1 MB)

This article provides findings of a fieldwork exploring the meaning of the family as it applies to Swazi adolescents’ everyday life. Findings suggest that the meaning of the family is constantly evolving and transforming based on changing needs of, and expectations by, adolescents in different contexts and moments of the care continuum. The study was part of the explorative and preparatory phase of the collaborative project Maximizing ART for Better Health and Zero New HIV infections (MaxART), led by the Swazi Ministry of Health.
