According to a UNAIDS report 42 million people are now infected with HIV and that in Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland and Zimbabwe one in three people has the disease!

Dr Gro Harlem Brundtland, director general of the World Health Organization, called for urgent government action.

Dr. Brundtland has said that "This is a critical moment of opportunity and danger. Unless we see national prevention initiatives championed by the highest level of government, the growth in infections can be unstoppable."
