AIDS in Africa

By: Jessen Blankenzee and Sarah Stoltman

Background on AIDS in Africa

60% Of Sub-Saharan Africa has HIV Aids virus. Most of the deaths there come from this virus. The large number comes from education and poverty. Most cannot afford the treatment. Many children are left as orphans and become the "bread-winner."

Solution to the problem

ASAP works closely with carefully selected women’s groups that currently provide services to more than 13,000 children and 700 child caregivers through multi-faceted programs. These programs include building centers where services are delivered to children, establishing organic food gardens to improve the nutrition of children, providing financial support to keep children in schools, facilitating access to health care and health care training for children and their carers.
