Abstract: The prevalence of HIV in Nigeria has been on a steady rise within the past decade. By the end of 1999, 2.7 million Nigerians were living with HIV/AIDS, translating into 400,000 new cases since the end of 1997. Despite glaring statistics and evidence of HIV/AIDS as a major health crisis, there is a general under reaction, self-denial and subdued population response to the disease. This paper identifies the construction industry as an important link in a sexual network for transmission of AIDS and suggests initiatives that could be adopted by the construction industry in Nigeria.
