The Effects of AIDS on Women
It seems like AIDS is affecting everyone in Africa. But today, women are the highest victims in getting HIV positive. They make up half of the population of people infected with AIDS in Africa. The main reason that women are most in harm is because of the society's structure about sex. Sex is not an open topic to talk about in Africa. Because of this, it raises concerns about African people learning about safe sex publicly. The president of Ghana, has set up a meeting about the concern of rapid AIDS transmission in 1995. He talked about being faithful to partners, and the important use of condoms. He also made a point that the community must start bringing the topic up or else AIDS will contine a rapid spread. Unfortunately, AIDS continues to grow today. The 1995 meeting had little effects.
