According to a literature study and a research survey conducted in 2004, caregivers are increasingly forced to deal with people living with AIDS as health services are unable to cope with the fast-growing HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Volgens ‘n literatuurstudie en ‘n empiriese ondersoek wat in 2004 onderneem is, word versorgers toenemend onder druk geplaas om met mense wat met VIGS lewe te werk, omdat die gesondheidsdienste nie meer die groeiende MIV/VIGS epidemie kan hanteer nie.
