ROLE OF POVERTY

Since most of the people are poor, they don't really have education which means they don't know how to prevent HIV/AIDS. When someone does get HIV in this area, they don't have money to get medicine to prevent the HIV from going into full blown AIDS.

CURABLE?

HIV/AIDS is not curable. If you get HIV and go see a doctor right away, they can give you medicine to prevent it from going to AIDS. But if you don't get checked right away and get some medicine, you'll get AIDS and die.
