THE IMPACT OF HIV/AIDS ON THE KENYA POLICE FORCE

xi
ABSTRACT The world is becoming increasingly complex and the most serious challenges are global in nature. One of these global challenges identified by the Millennium Project (one of various environmental organizations focusing on HIV/AIDS) is the control and reduction of new and re-emerging diseases and immune microorganisms. The illness and subsequent deaths of workers resulting from HIV/AIDS has an enormous impact on the national productivity and earnings. Labour productivity drops, the benefits of education are lost, and resources that would have been used for wealth creation and poverty reduction are diverted to treatment, care and support. Savings are declining and human capital is affecting production and quality of life. The objective of the study was to determine the impact of HIV /AIDS on the Kenya police force. This research was conducted through descriptive research design. It was based on both secondary and primary data and involved collection of information through the administration of questionnaires to the police officers in the police force, who were selected using stratified random sampling method. Data was analysed using descriptive statistics and interpreted using mean scores, frequencies /percentages. Data presentations were made using tables and graphs.
From the study, the researcher found that HIV/AIDS has a great impact on Kenya police force. These impacts are such as, some officers have died as a result of HIV/AIDS related illnesses, the officers perceived to be suffering from HIV/AIDS do not report on duty punctually, and also they leave for home before the official time which affects their performance in their assigned duties negatively. The trend of reporting for duty by those officers perceived to be suffering from HIV/AIDS is irregular, which also has a great effect on their performance and on the overall performance of the police force. HIV/AIDS also

has an impact to the Kenya police force as it spends a lot of time and money on funeral arrangements occasioned by HIV/AIDS. The study therefore recommends that in order to reduce the impacts of HIV/AIDS in the police force, the police officers should be encouraged to spend time and attend workshops on HIV/AIDS in order to have more awareness on HIV/AIDS and its impacts and also workplace policies on HIV/AIDS should be adequately implemented and also the department should mainstream HIV/AIDS in the core functions of the police officers.
