Do you remember the world before HIV/AIDS? Where will you be when the shadow of this disease is finally gone?
We have seen major advances in preventing and treating HIV/AIDS – but millions of people are still becoming infected and dying. In East and Southern Africa, 10.5 million children have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. As the number-one killer of women of reproductive age, this epidemic takes an enormous human toll on individuals, families and communities, and an enormous economic toll in terms of healthcare costs and lost productivity.
