The impact of HIV/AIDS on poverty in the Eastern Cape: a case study of Lusikisiki.
In recent publications and reports it has been outlined that HIV/AIDS is growing rapidly in the rural communities and the levels of poverty are on the increase. HIV/AIDS has been viewed to have a disastrous impact in almost every sphere of life, affecting the business sector, employment/unemployment, poverty, marginalizing a section of the population and tearing families apart. The study was aimed at exploring more issues that evolved around HIV/AIDS and poverty and also to determine if HIV/AIDS can be closely linked to poverty, because it has been reported that these two strongly affected each other.
