AIDS in Africa’s great lakes region


A combination of over-fishing, illegal fishing, pollution and climate change has strained the lake’s fish stock, causing many in the industry to struggle.

Fishermen, exploiting the difficulty for female fish traders to make a living, are known to give preferential treatment to them in return for sex. The practice has led to very high rates of HIV/AIDS among fishing communities in the area – about 30 percent prevalence rate compared to the national average of 7.5 percent.
