Abstract: There is evidence that age-mixing between young women and older men plays an important role in spreading HIV throughout the population. Studies in recent years have shown that in sub-Saharan African countries with generalised HIV epidemic, girls in sexual relationships with men five or more years older than themselves are at increased risk of HIV infection. This article discusses intergenerational sexual relationships in relation to HIV/AIDS in Swaziland.
