HIV/AIDS


HIV sufferers in South Sudan take a meal at the Zereda center in Western Equatoria state.

Those displaced from their homes by war and civil unrest are at greater risk of sexual violence which can spread the disease.

In recent years, Africans have made progress in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Prevention programs, new medicines and changes in behavior have brought infection rates down dramatically. But this success could be in danger if people aren’t careful about sexual activity. Those displaced from their homes by war and civil unrest are at greater risk of sexual violence which can spread the disease. Advice and information are available from health centers in many areas. So understand the risks, take precautions, and protect yourself from HIV/AIDS.
