Books, arts and cultureProspero. AIDS in America Ignorance is not bliss. The epidemic hits blacks hardest. Explaining the world, dailyThe Economist Explains. More from The Economist. America's AIDS epidemic is still not under control. Some studies have found that young gay black men are four times more likely to be HIV-positive than young gay white men, and twice as likely as Latinos. No one knows exactly why, but a study the CDC did last year in gay bars and gyms in five cities offers clues.

Sex with multiple partners is so entrenched in Southern Africa that it is a religion, a basic moral philosophy for most people here. It is often simply called culture or, specifically, African culture. Political leaders who marry an increasing number of wives and royalty that flaunts an equal number of wives and concubines are highly visible. Often such men conflate their multiple partners with culture, making it harder for us to confront them without being seen as uncultured or, worse, unAfrican.

HIV/AIDS is a major public health concern and cause of death in many parts of Africa

HIV/AIDS is a major public health concern and cause of death in many parts of Africa. Although the continent is home to about 1. percent of the world's population, more than two-thirds of the total infected worldwide – some 35 million people – were Africans, of whom 15 million have already died.

Let us take for Exhibit A the system of apartheid in South Africa, which Nelson Mandela dedicated himself to abolishing. In essence, apartheid was a set of economic institutions - rules that governed what people could or could not do, their opportunities and their incentives. Recognising that poor countries are poor because they have extractive institutions helps us understand how best to help them. It also casts a different light on the idea of foreign aid. We do not argue for its reduction. And it wasn’t foreign aid that helped to undermine the apartheid regime in South Africa and got Nelson Mandela out of prison, but international sanctions.

Stephanie Nolen, the last Western journalist covering the AIDS beat in Africa, tells Truthdig it is unfortunate but true that the more people die, the less people care, which is why she has decided to get personal with a new book that approaches the crisis from a different perspective

In reference to the severe drought in Africa, he states that the United States has ''callously ignored this unfolding tragedy. He implies that the . is not aware of this crisis situation and that no assistance is being given. Such an implication is completely false. By the time this letter is read, it is most likely that the numbers will already be much higher. The situation in Africa is now critical, and, as Mr. Dean states, ''we in the Western world, whether we like it or not, are key participants in the outcome.

They’ve taken on really impossible tasks and succeeded. And the battle in the fight against AIDS was won successfully. It’s an amazing thing. America leads the world in the fight against AIDS. Nearly 10 million lives are owed to America.

HIV/AIDS in the United States. The AIDS epidemic, caused by HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), found its way to the United States as early as 1960, but was first noticed after doctors discovered clusters of Kaposi's sarcoma and pneumocystis pneumonia in gay men in Los Angeles, New York City, and San Francisco in 1981. Treatment of HIV/AIDS is primarily via a "drug cocktail" of antiretroviral drugs, and education programs to help people avoid infection.

This book examines the epidemic of AIDS in Africa, poses questions about the practical and ethical possibilities of making HIV cocktails available on a wide scale, and provides an up-to-date bibliography on AIDS in Africa.
