By Eric Gondwe

Dr. Eric Gondwe is the founder of TheHarvard.com, an evangelical ministry which has an allied network of websites.

Below, are some major terms, questions & answers on orphans, AIDS, etc.

Who is an orphan?
UNAIDS defines an orphan as a child under the age of 18 who has lost at least one parent. UNICEF puts the age at 15 and below. A child whose mother has died is known as a maternal orphan; a child whose father has died is a paternal orphan. A child who has lost both parents is a double orphan.

What are the major causes of the growth of orphans?
Major causes include poverty, disease, war, famine, and HIV/AIDS. HIV/AIDS has been by far the leading cause in the past decade.

What are the most common terms used in the charity/non-profit world dealing with AIDS and orphans?
AIDS deaths: Estimated number of adults and children who died of AIDS.

Adult prevalence rate (%) (15–49 years): The estimated number of adults aged 15-49 living with HIV/AIDS divided by the adult population.

Children orphaned by AIDS as % of total orphans: Orphans due to AIDS as a % of all orphans.

Dependency ratio: the sum of children under 18 and persons 60 years or older divided by the number aged 18-59 years. It indicates the number of people in a household who must rely on each adult for food security and other provisions. A ratio of 1.6 means that for each adult, there are 1.6 people who must be supported.

Double orphans (thousands): Estimated number of children (0-14 years) whose mother and father have both died.

Female-headed households with orphans: Dependency ratio for households with orphans headed by a woman.

Life expectancy at birth (years): The number of years newborn children would live if subject to the mortality risks prevailing for the cross-section of population at the time of birth.

Male-headed households with orphans: Dependency ratio for households with orphans headed by a man.

Non-orphan households with children: Dependency ratio for households with children who are not taking care of orphans.

Number of orphans due to AIDS: Estimated number of children (0-14 years) who have lost one or both parents to AIDS.

Orphan households: Dependency ratio for households with orphans of any type.

Paternal orphans (thousands): Estimated number of children (0-14 years) whose father has died, where the survival status of the mother is unknown (alive, dead from AIDS, or dead from other causes).

Percentage double orphans: Percentage of children age 10-14 who lost both natural parents who are attending school.

Reduction in life expectancy due to AIDS (years): Difference in life expectancy at birth in years lost due to AIDS.

Total maternal orphans (thousands): Estimated number of children (0-14 years) whose mother has died, where the survival status of the father is unknown (alive, dead from AIDS, or dead from other causes).

Total number of orphans: Estimated number of children (0-14 years) who have lost one or both parents.

Total orphans as % of all children: Estimated % of children (0-14 years) who have lost one or both parents.

Under-5 mortality rate: Probability of dying between birth and exactly five years of age expressed per 1,000 live births.
