people more and more every day ,especially in Africa. The Sub-Saharan part of
Africa has the highest case of people with aids. HIV usually occurs in

prevention and awareness programs, the likelihood of changing political
climates is strong.  The future of the
AIDS crisis is uncertain, but will certainly rely on continuous political and
governmental support.
