Susanna W. Grannis founded and led, until 2010, CHABHA, Children Affected by HIV/AIDS. CHABHA partners with community-based children's associations in Africa. She was professor and dean at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Queens College - CUNY, and at the Bank Street College of Education. Her previous publications (as Susanna W. Pflaum) focused on children's education.


This is an unsentimental and realistic assessment of the desperate situation of children in sub-Saharan Africa affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Thus when the author says there is hope despite the hopelessness we must believe her. We are indebted to Susanna Grannis for pointing to the light at the end of the tunnel. -- Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Susanna Grannis' book brings us up-to-date with how the HIV/AIDS epidemic is affecting Africa's children. The stigma attached to the disease may be diminishing, but children's grief at their parent's death remains raw. It's a sensitive and informative book. -- Emma Guest, author Children of AIDS: Africa's Orphan Crisis (Pluto, 2003)
