    This thesis explores the AIDS epidemic in Developing Countries, and examines some of the factors contributing to the problem. It approaches the epidemic from a justice perspective, and so the themes discussed concentrate on issues of injustice and exploitation. The argument is that at the root of the crisis lie injustices which fuel the spread of HIV/AIDS. It is therefore not the intention here to focus primarily on AIDS as a sexual matter. Although within the Developing World, HIV/AIDS is mainly transmitted through heterosexual intercourse, the AIDS epidemic cannot adequately be discussed in these terms alone. Approaching it as a justice issue provides a broader and more inclusive understanding of the problematic.
