HIV Infections

World AIDS Day is Dec. 1. So, over the next two weeks we’ll be asking you some questions about HIV and AIDS.

If you answer that day’s question correctly, you’ll be eligible to win a free CD — your choice of either Portable Sounds by tobyMac or Beyond Measure by Jeremy Camp. We’ll randomly choose a winner each day from the correct answers.

Here’s the first question.

    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.

    Sadly I would have to say that this is true

  3. Linda November 10, 2009

    True – HIV does not respect man-made borders.

  4. Crystal November 9, 2009

    Yes – it’s true.

  5. Elizabeth R November 9, 2009

    Unfortunately, I say this is true.

  6. sheri beck November 9, 2009

    I am going to guess, true.

  7. Mary P. November 9, 2009

    Yes, this statement is true.

  8. Robyn Rubins November 9, 2009

    I hope it’s not, but I think it’s true.

  9. Anju November 9, 2009

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

  10. Ben Power November 9, 2009

    This is definitely true.

  11. Melissa Stephens November 9, 2009

    Yes, true…….

  12. Katie November 9, 2009

    Unfortunately, that is true.

  13. Sonya November 9, 2009

    I would say True.

  14. Chuck Guth November 9, 2009

    I would say this is True

  15. JiHyun H. November 9, 2009

    I guess it’s True.

  16. Meghan R November 9, 2009

    My instinct says that this is True, as much as I wish it were False.

  17. Terri K November 9, 2009

    I would say True.

  18. Kees Boer November 9, 2009

    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.

  19. Sara Benson November 9, 2009

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

  20. Michael November 9, 2009

    That is true I’m sorry to say.

  21. Amy Wallace November 9, 2009

    I’m going to say true.

  22. Judith Tremblay November 9, 2009

    Just a guess, but I’d say true.

  23. Sarah Charles November 9, 2009

    I would say that is true.

  24. TransitionGirl November 9, 2009

    unfortunately, Yes.
