As a result of... the HIV/AIDS epidemic, much of Africa has entered the 21st century watching the gains of the 20th evaporate.Many people in Africa catch aids from fellow people around them. thousands of people in Africa have to live and suffer with this horrible disease. 25 years ago, AIDS was unknown in Africa. Yet AIDS is now the number one killer disease in sub-Sahara Africa, surpassing malaria. Children are getting less and less of an education due to AIDS snatching the lives of their teachers. Even when there is another to replace one or to they only leave again. this disease affects everybody's lives even if the person themselves have not got it the people around them have and are still dieing in pain.
Children who have AIDS/HIV are mainly orphaned by their families. More children are fighting against the disease than adults. AIDS is passed down from generation to generation.
