World AIDS Update

Ad Feedback

Today is the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day. All over the world, people are coming together to draw attention to the disease.

Twenty years on, and not too much has changed regarding the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The region remains the most affected by the AIDS epidemic in the world.

The World Health organization reports that more than two thirds of all people infected with HIV live in Africa.

And women still bear the brunt of the disease, representing more than 60% of people living with HIV.

There is some good news out there though...the same report shows that most countries in Africa have seen the HIV rate stabilize, in cluding Cote D'Ivoire, Kenya and Zimbabwe.
