ABSTRACT This qualitative research investigated the relation between Women empowerment and the’ prevalence of HIV AIDS in Munkunyu Sub-county Kasese District. The descriptive research design was used with and out of total population of one hundred respondents, a sample 50 children and 34 parents both male felmale as well as one NGO within Munkunyu Subcounty, Kasese district drawn using a Stratified random sampling technique. Data was analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). Results were presented in the form of charts and tables. The major findings of the study revealed that increased women empowerment through both education and financial stability directly reduced on the level of HIV prevalence in the communities sampled. It was also observed that the parents and the males in the society have not yet fully appreciated the logic behind girl-child education and women empowerment in as far as HIV prevalence is concerned. This study also recommends that laws and prescribing some punishment for any members of the society that practice cultural activities that tend discriminate against women and female children should be enacted and implemented even in the remote villages.
