I have heard that it truck drivers going through the villages bring in Aids/HIV adding to the difficulty of containing this disease. Thank you for a very good article.

Knowledge is key when it comes to battling HIV/ AIDS. Just a horrible disease. I have had a few friends lose their life back in the late 80's, before they started to come up with the new drugs, it was just awful. The poor guys suffered so much. We as parents need to do all we can, of explaining the dangers to our kids. Thank you for sharing.:)
