The effect of HIV/AIDS on secondary school students in Kibiito sub-county Kaborole district. The research adopted a case study design targeting a number of 4 schools. The Centre has four secondary schools both public and private. The researcher employed purposive sampling technique. The data was then analyzed using percentages, pie charts, tables, bar graphs and frequency distribution techniques using SPSS Version 16. The study established that Students with HIV/AIDS have challenges ranging from absenteeism occasioned by their attendance to medical care as well as caring for their aging and ailing parents. This eventually forces them to drop out of school when their parents die. The study recommends that Students living with HIV/AIDS should be supported by the government through provision of free secondary school education to ease the burden on parents. Child headed families should be eradicated by indenting orphans and initiating consultation development funds to help them with bursaries to reduce poverty.
