Abstract:

Sub-Saharan Africa has been more devastated by the HIV/AIDS epidemic than any other world region. The epidemic is taking an enormous toll on the region's youth: Nearly 10 million women and men aged 15 to 24--roughly one in 14 young adults--are living with HIV/AIDS, and half of new infections in 2003 occurred among this age-group.
