The province of KwaZulu-Natal leads South Africa in
HIV/AIDS infection, with over two-thirds of the currently estimated 1.8 million cases.
Recent studies show that the spread of HIV is accelerating, especially among young people
under the age of 25. For Zulu township youth, HIV infection has come to be accepted as a
new and inevitable part of growing up. Ongoing political violence and high levels of crime
characterize the townships, from which has emerged a youth culture where young people who
suspect theyt may be infected with HIV will avoid a definite diagnosis while at the same
time seek to spread the infection as widely as possible. This response to the growing
HIV/AIDS epidemic is examined aginst the cultural ethos of UBUNTU and the strategies once
used by youth to forge solidarity in their struggle against the former white regime. The
social impact of this response, which may include increasing rape incidence, is discussed
