A War with AIDS: Africa's Crisis
Africa has been haunted by the AIDS epidemic. It has taken countless lives and the death toll is continuously growing. Twenty-eight million people live with AIDS in Sub Sahara Africa. AIDS claimed 900,000 lives in South Africa during 2001. Three million children today are left with one parent or none. Six hundred thousand people die of AIDS related illnesses everyday in Sub-Saharan Africa. These are just a few of the facts of the AIDS crisis. However, people in Africa are still living with a positive spirit, and have hopes and courage even though death is just around the corner. The industries, economy, and education are being affected as the result of AIDS. Africa is in need of attention and awareness.
