AIDS Awareness

A lot has been done and is being done to make everyone aware of Aids in Africa and in the World. HIV and AIDS awareness is vital for everyone. HIV & AIDS in South Africa is a prominent health concern because South Africa is believed to have more people with HIV/AIDS than any other country. The other top five countries with the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence are all neighbouring countries of South Africa.

It is thus very important to help raise awareness to tackle HIV prejudice and help stop the spread of HIV. Educating the people of South Africa can help them apply preventative measures, stop the spread of aids, get tested and dispel the stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS.
