Through my research I found that a persons family identity, including traditions and belief have a major impact on how they respond to HIV/AIDS. This response in the scope of family identity and tradition can actually lead to unforeseen consequences, both positive and negative. How do family life and culture relate to HIV/AIDS epidemic?, What is the impact of family life and culture on HIV? How does this impact affect the populace? What are the unforeseen ways the epidemic affects how people react to HIV? Why would belief and tradition affect the HIV epidemic? How does the way people react to HIV affect the epidemic itself?
