AIDS Statistic

AIDS Statistic

I read an interesting article on MSNBC about AIDS research in South Africa.

Following is a quote from this article:

"During nearly 10 years of government denial and neglect, South Africa developed a staggering AIDS crisis. Around 5.2 million South Africans were living with HIV last year — the highest number of any country in the world. Young women are hardest hit, with one-third of those aged 20-to-34 infected with the virus."
