dc.description.abstract It gives me pleasure to present the first report on "Prisoner's awareness on HIV-AIDS with reference to Empangeni Qalakabusha prison. The compilation of this research emanates from the willingness to inform, educate, advice and guide the Government and Prison management on the issues relating to HIV-AIDS in South African prisons, since less has been compiled in relation to this issue. The report reflects on the most important challenges facing our prison society, their causes and consequences. This is done to ascertain whether there is progress, activities or means done in relation to developing HIV-AIDS awareness in the prison institutions. The contents of this report are organized and delivered in a series of four chapters, dealing with specific and different contents, under the umbrella of the main study topic. Each chapter simply begins with an introduction, which gives an overview of the material entertained in that particular section. An inclusive response from all Empangeni Qalakabusha prison stakeholders' through questionnaires and interviews form bases of this qualitative study report findings. Recommendations are made inter alia some of the findings. These recommendations are aimed at all South Africans facing this epidemic. The researcher also sincerely hopes that information on this report will be used to promote the culture of "Breaking the silence" around this silent killer of our nation. As South Africa faces the challenges of its renewal or renaissance, there is no greater potential barrier to the attainment of this vision than the spectra of the HIVAIDS epidemi en_US
