HIV/AIDS in Mlolongo, Kenya
Mombasa Highway and Weigh Station
- Truckers spend 3+ days waiting to be processed, providing a costumer base for prostitution
- In Kenya, 27.6% of female sex workers are HIV positive and only 26.8% use condoms with all of their partners (Morris, Morris, and Ferguson, 2009).
- The rampant spread of HIV and lack of contraception has led to rapid growth in the population in an area that has little ability to support any residents
- Development of Slums that now line the highway
