The impact of HIV/AIDS on the planning environment of the water sector as well as the financial planning, human resources and human resource costs of enterprises operating in this sector are considered.

The national prevalence is expected to peak at 25 per cent of the adult population by the year 2006. The increased morbidity and mortality arising from this deadly virus will have profound demographic and economic consequences.
