Description
THE FEMINIZATION OF HIV/AIDS IN AFRICA

Some 40 million people are living with HIV/AIDS today - 70% are in sub-Saharan Africa.

Women and girls there increasingly bear the brunt ot the disease - accounting for well over 60 % of those infected. Who speaks for those at the heart of the pandemic? What can be done to reverse the spread of AIDS in this region, especially among women? Can leaders, activists and the international community really make good on the promises to deliver the desperately needed prevention and treatment programmes?

These are some of the issues discussed in this episode of World Chronicle with Stephen Lewis, UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa.
