Jane Gakii Marete, Justus Nderitu Maina

The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of HIV/AIDS on social welfare of elderly caregivers in Igembe South Sub-County. Descriptive survey design was adopted where a purposively selected sample of 220 elderly caregivers were involved in the focus group discussions and key informants interviews.
