Abstract

HIV/AIDS in Africa: Trends, Missing Links and the Way Forward

Within the African regions, there are striking differences in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease burden yet social and cultural differences are relatively small suggesting that sexual transmission alone may not explain HIV infections in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Thus, sexual contact with an infected person represents only a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for HIV transmission through sex.
