Despite national HIV incidence in eSwatini dropped by almost half since 2011, the country has the highest HIV prevalence in the world, with 27.2 percent of their adult population living with HIV. Women are disproportionately affected by the epidemic; 31 percent of all women are living with HIV, compared to 20 percent of men. This situation has negative impact on the country’s socio-economical fabric. 63 percent of Swazis live below the national poverty line. Women in rural areas governed by customary law are especially vulnerable to discrimination and harmful practices. The Swazi government has yet to enact the Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Bill developed in 2009 to protect women’s rights.
