The author reflects on the situations which contribute to the increasing number of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) cases. She assesses that 30% to 75% of the women who do sex work are HIV positive particularly in sub-Saharan Africa and Caribbean regions. The author has evaluated that the epidemic of HIV/AIDS cases is driven by the poverty and the need to earn money for living.
