Abstract
In this investigation an attempt was firstly made to define, describe and explicate the
phenomenon of HIV/AIDS providing a basis for understanding the multidimensional nature of
HIV/AIDS in terms of its history, key characteristics, etiology, consequences, preventative and
care strategies. Secondly, culture and cultural practices in general were investigated after
which the characteristics, functions and elements of culture were studied. Hereafter, the
researcher further investigated the situation of HIV/AIDS and cultural practices of the Batswana
in Botswana through a literature study.
The aim of the study was to establish the influence of cultural practices of the Batswana on the
transmission of HIV/AIDS in Botswana.
