U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer
HIV/AIDS Project, Zambia
May 2005 – July 2007
Data from UNAIDS/WHO AIDS Epidemic Update: December 2006
“Sub-Saharan Africa bears brunt of global epidemic. Two thirds (63%) of all adults and children with HIV globally live in sub-Saharan Africa.”
“Across sub-Saharan Africa, women are more likely than men to be infected with HIV, and they are more likely to be the ones caring for people infected with HIV.”
Data from UNAIDS/WHO AIDS Epidemic Update: December 2006 & Ministry of Health Zambia, 2005
Thoughts to think about:Did you feel slightly embarrassed when I asked whether you had been tested for a cold or the flu? Did you feel embarrassed when I asked about having been tested for HIV? If you felt differently, Why?
