AIDS in Africa Among Women and Infants: A Human Rights Framework
It is difficult to overestimate the devastation of the AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa. In that region, 9 percent of all adults are HIV-infected. Africa will soon reach premature death rates not seen since the end of the nineteenth century. In eleven countries, a baby born in 2010 will live, on average, barely beyond his or her thirtieth birthday.
