The answer to yesterday’s question is “true.”

HIV infections are found throughout the world, and developing countries are particularly vulnerable to the devastation caused by HIV and AIDS.

In poverty-stricken countries, many people do not understand the risk of HIV or how to prevent it. Once infected, they do not have the same access to treatment as do those suffering from the disease in the developing world.
