After spending a month in Uganda and being prompted to explore the Social Factors Impacting the Prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Uganda for the class “Desire, Work and Love II” taught by Dana Cudney, I developed a passion for this topic. Afterwards, having gained a lot of knowledge on this topic, I wanted to investigate it further. This second research was conducted in April 2018, during my second undergraduate year, for the course “Research and Data Analysis” taught by Moira Ferguson at Laurentian University. The final report explores the statistical background of HIV in fishing communities in Uganda and, furthermore, discusses the reasons behind high HIV rates in certain communities from a sociological aspect.
