Résumé partiel _ Over the last two decades, Kenya has faced a generalized pandemic whose impact has varied and intensified with time. HIV/AIDS has a great impact on the agricultural sector and the rural livelihoods. The role of producer organizations in averting the sale of livelihoods assets by AIDS affected households in Kenya was studied through the Kenya National Federation of Agricultural Producers (KENFAP). This was prompted by the declining asset ownership among KENFAP members, caused by the new type of needs that arise due to HIV/AIDS. The objective of the research was to explore the ways in which KENFAP could contribute towards building the resilience of its members to the impact of AIDS by providing information on alternative strategies that the AIDS affected households could opt for, other than the sale of livelihood assets. A qualitative research based on literature review and two case studies was carried out. The first case study was on AIDS affected households in Nyanza, Rift valley and Central provinces, representing the high, medium and low HIV prevalence regions, respectively. Twelve households were purposively sampled from the KENFAP membership in the three sites. The second case study was among seven KENFAP staff working at various levels. In-depth interviews were conducted using pretested checklists and follow up was done by telephone calls for clarity of information. Data was descriptively analysed by use of the sustainable livelihoods framework.
