This study examined the relationship between socio-economic factors and AIDS
mortality rate in the eight provinces of Kenya between 1995 and 2002. The fundamental
difference between this study and the previous ones was its focus on AIDS-related deaths
instead of HIV/AIDS prevalence rates.
The greatest challenge in this exercise was finding region-specific data about
Kenya since data banks managed by global organizations like World Bank and United
Nation are aggregated at national level. AIDS mortality records are also poorly kept and
in some cases unavailable and/or unreliable
