This paper explores links between the impacts of AIDS and young people's livelihood prospects in two villages, one in southern Malawi and the other in the mountains of Lesotho. Drawing on the concept of livelihood trajectories, it focuses on the ways in which young people respond to both the immediate sustenance requirements of themselves and their households and their need to accrue assets for future livelihoods. . Beyond addressing empirical questions concerning the impacts of AIDS, this article contributes to our understanding of how livelihoods are produced and to the conceptualisation of youth transitions as produced through the iteration of present and future
