Does "the epidemic was having on the family, work and social lives" mean "the epidemic was having serious impact on the family, work and social lives"?
Bertrand has been working in the HIV field for almost 20 years, and first became involved in
the response to the epidemic at grass roots level in the early 1990s. While working at the
Alliance Francaise in Auckland, New Zealand, Bertrand was motivated to volunteer in HIV
prevention programmes in Auckland’s gay community by the disastrous consequences that
he saw the epidemic was having on the family, work and social lives of men and women
living with HIV in the local area.
What has De got to do with anything?
