INJECTION: The Truth about HIV in Africa

Africa has one of the highest prevalence of HIV infected people. More than 20% of the nation’s adult are infected with HIV, this makes up an astonishing 22 million people. The condition is so bad that the African authorities have even set up states that are isolated for HIV infected people to reside in.

And so you thought HIV in Africa is predominantly caused by unprotected sex. Well, that’s what people tells us. But the truth is, Africa is a economic poor country, there are other stuff to worry about other than using condoms. Other than having unprotected sex, HIV is also well known to spread through one other mean.

Used Syringe. Due to their state of economy and poor health care practices. Syringes are often reused in Africa, often up to 20 times. But that’s not all, these syringes that are reused are actually used syringes that came from foreign, richer countries.

Something has gotta stop this cycle of spreading the virus before this whole nation is being conquered with HIV.

    Africa is a CONTINENT, not a COUNTRY!

    The continent has 54 sovereign states, including Madagascar, various island groups, and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, a member state of the African Union whose statehood is disputed by Morocco.

    This makes no sense, if they wanted to spread AIDS why inject it into children who are not sexually active? if you want AIDS to spread you inject it into the group of people who would spread it to other, mostly men age 18-40

      I don’t think anyone necessarily “wants” to spread AIDS.  The argument seems to be that hospitals and public health organizations are so poor, they routinely reuse needles instead of throwing them away after a single use.

    Apparently, Africa has only 110 million adults.   Actually, it has a population of slightly over 1 billion, so surely the number of adults is far greater than 110 million.

    I don’t think I will bother watching this one.

    “Disposable” syringes, when not disposed of after a single use, are the problem. Bring back glass which can be sterilized with boiling water and reused safely, and watch the numbers drop.
