Poverty used to be a rural phenomenon, but lately, it has become a common
rural and urban experience which correlates directly with family size and the
number of earners in a household. In order to effectively combat the spread of
HIV/AIDS, it is very important that the relationship between poverty and the
disease be determined, with special reference to a poor resource setting, this
is essential because poverty have a multiplier effect on food security, nutrition
as well as reducing new case and caring for those already infected
