The challenges facing the Education and Health sectors of the Swaziland government with respect to HIV/AIDS are indeed enormous. Vast numbers of economically active people, teachers and health sector employees will be lost to AIDS. National budget allocations need to be revised and economies elsewhere in the budget need to be sought and channeled towards the Health and Education sectors. Government strategies for health programs, prevention, and guidance and counseling are some of the major focuses of the response plan to curb HIV/AIDS and break the silence to improve the quality of information about the disease.
