Abstract: HIV/AIDS is an epidemic that has, in the last two decades, evolved into a growing concern. The main issues associated with the epidemic include economical and social development, other health related problems, education, and instability in familial structures as well as state security. It is anticipated that by 2020, almost 60% of adult deaths in Africa will be caused by AIDS (UNAIDS, 2009). This is a clear indication of how policy changes need to be implemented and more funding to be directed toward education, anti-retroviral medication, and secondary treatment. In this paper, the author would like to discuss areas that will help manage and control the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa because failure to do so, will potentially lead to an increase in health-related problems, poverty, a decrease in safety and security, and economic turmoil. The key to solving the issue is through proactive communication, effective education and adequate funding from international organizations such as the United Nations (UN) and various Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and combined policy changes from affected states.
