"The epidemic profile for HIV remains essentially unchanged with the major burden falling on the most productive sector of the society, those in the 20-54 age group. Males continue to predominate in most age groups. Reports from LRU indicate that between 1984 and 2008, 63 per cent of new HIV cases were men and 68 per cent diagnosed with AIDS were also men. Of the deaths during that period, 73 per cent were men and 27 per cent women. Statistics suggest that women tend to be diagnosed earlier. Their health-seeking activities may also be responsible for their better experiences after having contracted HIV/AIDS" (39)
