Description
"THE EIGHT AGAINST AIDS IN AFRICA"

Of the forty-two million people worldwide living with HIV/AIDS, 30 million live in sub-Saharan Africa. In a deadly combination with famine, civil war, and poverty, the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa is threatening to destroy entire societies. What can be done to stop this scourge? How are the countries of southern Africa being affected? Are the world's richer countries committed to fighting the HIV/AIDS pandemic on the continent? And what can African societies themselves do to help? In this edition of World Chronicle these questions are explored in a frank discussion with Stephen Lewis, the Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for HIV/AIDS in Africa.
