The statistics for African HIV infection are at best wild guesses. No real testing is done in a large swath of the continent.

In additiion to the lack of actual valid,verifiable statistics it seems that Africans no longer are dying of malnutrition,malaria,cholera,T.B. and the myriad of other "wasting" diseases that were so prevalent in Africa until ten years ago. No, now every African that dies is ticked as an AIDS death.How can people be seo gulllible?
Another factor involving AIDS in Africa is the fact that frequently little clinics will immunize,innoculate and/ or vaccinate large numbers of villagers with the same needle.
AIDS is big business,and more than any other is able to realize huge profits and receive large sums of money from the public both through public monies collected through taxes as well as the increased insurance payments the ordinary citizen has to pay for private insurance. Thanks in a good part for the big corporations insuring "significant others".
