sep 12, 2003 - SA Government Finally Accepts HIV/AIDS FACTS

Description:

Two long accepted facts across the globe: that HIV causes AIDS, and that anti-retroviral drugs can retard the progress of the disease, are for the record, at last acceded to by the South African government.
‘Personally, I don't know anybody who has died of AIDS', President Thabo Mbeki tells The Washington Post.
Also according to the Washington Post, South Africa is one of the countries most affected by HIV and AIDS. About 4.7 million people ( ±11 % of the population) are infected with the virus. Between 600 and 1,000 die each day from the disease and related complications
