This week in Africa, Pope Benedict spoke out strongly against the use of condoms to fight AIDS.

In his first public comments on the issue, he not only condemned the use of condoms to fight AIDS, but also said they increase the problem.

The Pope's remarks came in the country of Cameroon, the first stop of his week-long African trip.

Many relief workers, including priests and nuns, disagree with the Pope's views.

The UN estimates that 22 million people in sub-saharan Africa are infected with HIV.

In 2007, African AIDS deaths accounted for three-quarters of AIDS deaths worldwide.
