Description

Time reports on the troubling numbers of AIDS cases in sub-Saharan Africa. "An estimated 8.8% of adults in Africa are infected with HIV/AIDS." The main problem in this area is lack of communication and prevention about the disease. As more and more people contract the disease, they are afraid to get tested because they will be shunned in their communities. In addition, African men continue to sleep with other women and then sexually transmit the disease to their wife and children. People in this area continue their daily lifestyles, ignoring possible signs of AIDS and continuing to pass it along. And statistics such as "17 million Africans have died since the AIDS epidemic began in the 1970s, more than 3.7 million of them children" leave us wondering how to decrease these staggering numbers when no one seems to listen.
