A British team of scientists from Imperial College, London
said that awareness, education, and changed sexual behavior
caused huge declines in AIDS infections in East Zimbabwe.
They said that 49% fewer women in 15 to 24 year band and 23%
fewer men in 17 to 29 year band were noticed to have the
virus. According to UN data, 40 millions world over are
infected with the AIDS virus and over 5 million died in
2005. The poorest region in the world, sub-Saharan Africa is
the worst affected area. AIDS infection in India is not well
recorded to get reliable estimates.
