    S.Africa : Quarter of schoolgirls have HIV

    Quarter of S.African schoolgirls have HIV
    14 Mar 2013

    As much as 28 percent of South African schoolgirls are HIV positive, according to figures from the country's health minister reported by local media on Thursday.


    This picture taken on July 23, 2012 in Durban shows a giant billboard highlighting the dangers for young women of having sex with older men. As many as 28 percent of South African schoolgirls are HIV positive, according to figures from the country's health minister reported.

    Unveiling statistics that minister Aaron Motsoaledi admitted "destroyed my soul", he added that four percent of schoolboys have the virus.

    "It is clear that it is not young boys who are sleeping with these girls. It is old men," the Sowetan newspaper quoted Mr Motsoaledi as saying.

    "We can no longer live like that," he said.

    Mr Motsoaledi called for an end to the trend of young girls becoming involved with "sugar daddies".

    He also revealed that 94,000 South African schoolgirls fell pregnant in 2011, some aged as young as 10.

    South Africa has one of the world's highest HIV/AIDS infection rates, although the number of cases resulting in death is in sharp decline.

    Official figures show that South Africa has six million people living with HIV, in a population of 50 million.

    The country has the largest anti-retroviral programme in the world, serving 1.7 million.

    The health department recently introduced measures to curb the spread of HIV among school children, introducing voluntary testing and suggesting condom distribution at schools.

    A drug company's dream.

    I think you will find that the responsibility for this mess lies fairly and squarely with the ANC, their little band of HIV denialists and the electorate who handed them the keys to the country.

    I think you will find that the responsibility for this mess lies fairly and squarely with the drug companies and their investors who want to get everyone in the country on retro virals. I'd back Durex campaigns though to stop teen pregnancies. You gotta hand it to the ANC, they tried to hold out against the money tree offered them by the drug companies - eventually the corruption was too much to resist. Now "everyone" has aids and must buy the kool aid.
    My mind is not for rent to any God or Government, There's no hope for your discontent - the changes are permanent!
