Abstract

Social and behavioural patterns contribute more to the spread (or to the prevention) of an epidemic than the availability of medical treatment. Currently no cure or vaccine for HIV / AIDS is available and access to affordable antiretrovirals is still not available to the wider public.Thus, social and behavioural interventions become a key option to prevent and control the further spread of HIV / AIDS. By understanding the role that various psychosocial, cultural and religious factors play in the transmission of HIV infection in communities, possible strategies and options for prevention programmes can be developed.
