The aim of the paper is to provide substantiated information to the long-distance trucking industry on the impact that HIV / AIDS has or may have on their businesses. The current and future impact of the HIV / AIDS epidemic on the long-distance trucking industry is unknown. The extent of any action taken within the industry to mitigate and manage the effects of HIV / AIDS is also unknown, but thought to be minimal. Unless businesses and other entities in business (trade unions or associations) together with government become informed and proactive regarding the impact of HIV / AIDS on their businesses, the epidemic could run the worst course within the sector.
