The paper studied theimperatives of health psychologists in the control and management of HIV- AIDS.HIV-AIDS is a relatively new disease, but has caused more deaths than any otherdisease in human history, and there is no known cure yet. Even though, HIV-AIDSis a death sentence, experts agreed that early detection, and earlycommencement of treatment may prolong the life of the patients, and that earlydetection may prevent or reduce the transmission of the virus. Early detection,commencement of treatment, and compliance with medical advice are theresponsibilities of the health psychologist. This paper therefore, concludesthat health psychologist is indispensable in effective control, and managementof HIV-AIDS, and so recommends that awareness be created on the roles of healthpsychologists in this regard, through health education.
