This article reviews the socio-economic implications and consequences of the spreading HIVIAIDS epidemic. We pose the question of the potential effect of massive epidemic in Nigeria on th rest of the African countries considering its economic, political, and social influence in the region. main aim is to sensitize the general public from the socio-economic perspective to the magnitude of the problem and particularly policy-makers, to the implications of the problems. This we believe should enhance greater commitment in terms of will, planning and adequate funding of strategies to stem the epidemic. generated are envisaged as useful tool for health workers in community mobilisation and for participation in control of the epidemic.
