Actually, it is important to note that many third world "AIDS" cases have not been tested for HIV - it costs money which they don't have (or went into a kleptocrat's bank account). If the patient shows a combination of symptoms, they call it AIDS... Sort of like a school calling a kid ADHD to get additional federal money. It may not be nearly as prevalent in Africa folks think.

Yes, the number of aids cases in the third world is inflated, but even if you allow for that, the number of cases is just too high for it to be accounted for by homosexual and IV drug use transmission.
