    True. Some countries have less than others, but no one country is spared.

    I would say “No.”

    There is a country with less than 100 inhabitants, with countries like those around, there is a good chance that there no one might have HIV in one of those countries.

    Sadly, it is true. What’s even more tragic is that more people get infected every moment of every day.

    The answer is true, and our winner is Becky Berry (via Facebook)

    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.
