The effect of HIV/AIDS is still a great challenge to the people's life, very little is known
of its spread, prevention, and effects on the community control process. The main
objective of this study is to assess the effects of HIV/AIDS in Maasai community in
Monduli district with the idea of drawing awareness strategies to control the new spread
of HIV/AIDS. Its focus is on the causes and impact and the knowledge of the effects of
this pandemic disease to the Maasai community and making awareness of a control
strategy through education to control the new effected persons.
The study is a case study carried out in Makuyni Sub County in monduli district of north
Tanzania between December 2009 and January 2010, using PRA tools, interviews and
questionnaires as well as literature review to collect information necessary for the study
The study findings indicate that, effects of HIV/ AIDS are spreading within the
community and community has little knowledge about it. The government and nongovernmental organization were providing education about the causes and the effects but
the great challenge is the culture of the Maasai community and illiteracy among the entire
community. The few educated are used to educate others because it becomes easy for
them to accept the education through their fellow tnl>e mate than other people from
outside their community.
The recommendations: are long-term measures undertaken to educate the people about
HIV I AIDS and its effect. The measures should include education about the causes of
HIV/ AIDS and the effect, to stop their culture which promotes spread of the disease and
use the culture which is friendly to the human life. Provide education about the control of
HIV/ AIDS to relief their lives.
