dc.description.abstractThe study sought to evaluate the relationship between care provided by foster families and psychosocial well-being of children affected by HIV and AIDS in Kiambu County. The study adopted a crosssectional survey because it is suitable for collecting data at a single point in time. Multi-stage cluster sampling was used to select 345 children aged 10-17 years from a target population of 3780 children. The study relied on key informant interview guides, questionnaires, observation checklist and child drawings for collection of data. Validity and reliability tests were done to establish the gaps in the research instrument using the Cronbach Alpha method. The formulated hypothesis was tested using chi-square and factor analysis. Qualitative data was transcribed, coded and categorized into themes and words to allow for analysis and presentation. Results of the study established that there was a significant relationship between care provided by foster families and psychosocial well-being of CAHA based on results of factor analysis at 61.4% and chisquare results (χ2= 4.6607; df= 4; p=0.001). This study concluded that there was a significant relationship between care provided by foster families and psychosocial well-being of children affected by HIV and AIDS. The study recommended that national and county governments and non-governmental organizations can ensure sustainability of families and communities by empowering them with knowledge and skills for CAHA to thrive in responsive environments. The study recommended that the Kenya government should commit resources to promote the psychosocial well-being of CAHA at various levels through government-mandated departments. The study will provide credible practical information to identify gaps in knowledge anden_US
