Background

Kisumu district is one of the districts in Nyanza province that has been greatly affected by hiv/aids. While HIV prevalence in the province is estimated at 22%, Kisumu district has a HIV prevalence rate of 28%. The high HIV prevalence in the city is attributed by: (1) Culture of denial due to stigma and rejection; (2) Harmful socio-cultural practices; (3) Poverty; (4) Low use of condoms; (5) Drug and alcohol abuse; (6) Ignorance.

The areas greatly affected by the virus include slums and strips along the beaches of Lake Victoria. It is imperative that hiv/aids intervention target these areas in order to reduce further spread of hiv/aids.
