Free text This study explored the child welfare plans of 102 mothers with terminal illness (predominantly AIDS) in rural Mozambique. According to the study the majority of these mothers assumed that after their death the extended family would care for the children, but none offered a clearly identified plan. Many of these mothers mentioned the preference for placement in an orphanage over other options.
