An Article on the AIDS Epidemic in Africa
AIDS rate is higher among women than men, but many men are not being tested. 30% of young African women believe that if a man looks healthy then he could not have AIDS. In the male-dominated cultures of Africa, many women and girls are forced to have sex with men. In fact, some infected men believe they will be cured not by medicine, but by having sex with virgins, thus causing 12 year old girls to become infected.
Human bodies are not the only thing suffering in this AIDS problem, businesses are also suffering too. The American Foundation for AIDS Research found that 80 percent of those dying are between ages 20 and 50, workers in their prime. This causes a lack of productiveness that these nations need.
AIDS is a horrible disease which has plagued Africa, with limited resources, it may be trapped for an even longer ride ahead.
