AIDS in Africa

AIDS is an old epidemic that is deadly serious

I lost relatives to AIDS, a couple of my closest cousins. I lost friends to AIDS, high-school friends who never even made it to their 21st birthdays in the '80s. When it's that close to you, you can't really deny it, and you can't run from it. - queen Latifah
