HIV Disclosure Comics
Deciding whether and when to disclose one's HIV status to a child is one of the most significant challenges caregivers in PHACS tell us they face. Dialogues with Community Advisory Board (CAB) members, clinical site staff, and other disclosure experts have shed light on the complexity of this issue. For some caregivers, it simply may not be the right time to disclose to their children for a number of reasons. For others, a fear of rejection, a fear that the child will tell others, or feeling unprepared to answer questions their children might ask can also play a role in the decision of whether or not to disclose.
