In Conclusion

Since the outbreak of HIV/AIDS, the public and the government have been focusing on those that are determined to be high-risk populations, but as it continued to spread, this strategy eventually became insufficient. The disease can and does, directly and indirectly, impact the lives of caretakers, parents, children, and members outside of the nuclear family (Rotheram-Borus, 2003). The realization that the consequences of HIV/AIDS expand far outside of the lives of those with the disease is essential to organize feasible and effective means to solve this problem. Recent studies have shown that family-oriented invention can reduce psychological stress, family-related issues, and provide support for families even in low-income areas if combined with a fair amount of funding (Rotheram-Borus, 2007, Perlman, 2018). Despite the number of people living with HIV increasing, the number of people accessing HAART and the number of financial resources are being invested in low and middle-income countries. With the continuance of the current trend, hope remains that the casualties will continue slowing down, stresses of HIV/AIDS will be further alleviated, and that eventually, it will be eliminated in the future.
