To a great extent many are dealing in survival activities characterized of the informal sector operations. They include small holder farming, cattle keeping, market vendors, housemaids, brick making, tailoring, and handcrafts to mention but a few.
A majority of these community fall under the most productive age group and sexually most active. They are either employees, employer, self –employed or just a member of the wide community. It is important to note that the workplace is not separated from the community where they live although some may work in an atmosphere that is separated from the community.
The relatively high financial need of some people has leads to situations of sexual exploitation of women and school girls who need money because of their desperate situations and domestic demands. The exchange of gifts for sex has also added pressure on young people allowing the acquiring of HIV/ AIDs. Cited examples of women/girls pressured into sex with older men are often their sponsors around Lugazi trailors park.
Poor feeding, inadequate housing and lack of hygiene has made HIV/AIDs infected persons even more vulnerable to AIDS related diseases.
