This story analyzes the spread of AIDS through rural areas in Mozambique, Africa. People in small, rural communities who should be at a low risk for contracting the virus have very high infection rates. It turns out that this is because men from these areas often leave to go work in the mines in South Africa, but keep girlfriends and wives in Mozambique. The miners get AIDS from prostitutes around the mines and then transmit it to their partners at home. The story also explores the socioeconomic effects of AIDS on small rural communities, and looks at ways in which the government and NGOs are working to stop this trend.
