Abstract: This paper discusses Nigerians' place in the realization of the MDGs as it relates to information, education & library access in rural communities, as a means of halting and reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS among the most vulnerable. It looks at the gender gap in access to information and education about HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. The rural communities, the poor, the displaced, sex workers, and young women are the most disenfranchised, therefore AIDS consistently moves through these fracture points of society through inequitable gender, social, or economic relations. Radio and television phone-in programmes, indigenous Nigerian language talk-shows, community radio transmission and mobile libraries with indigenous multimedia and print materials are empowerment tools useful to demand enhanced services, life saving drugs, basic right, and air thier views, opinions and challenges.
