Nurses and midwives throughout Africa face dire consequences of HIVAIDS in their daily lives. Much of Africa's healthcare resources are spent on HIV / AIDS. Worldwide many research reports have been published on HIV / AIDS.

In this edition of the Africa Journal of Nursing and Midwifery, three out of nine articles address issues related to HIV / AIDS. Being HIV positive and pregnant implies carrying a new life whilst trying to cope with one's HIV positive diagnosis.
