    • Too poor to send their children to school, which cased a decline in enrollment of school.
  • 11. Solution #1- Education is key and they need to be educated not just in general terms, but also because they no so little about AIDS and how to prevent it. They need to educate on hygiene practices- Sterile needles, and protected sex
    • Positives:
    • It would lower the risk of AIDS because people know how to be safer
    • It would decrease sharing of needles and unprotected sex
  • 12. Solution #2-Programs should be created so that condoms are widely available to all to prevent the spread of this horrific disease.
    • Positives:
    • If condoms were available people would use them
    • People would have access to condoms
    • This would help practice safe sex which reduces the risk of AIDS

    • Negatives:
    • It would be expensive for families to be educated
    • It would be economically expensive all together
