Aids is here and it kills

A mother and her baby are waiting for a medical consultation in the Bocaranga Hospital, Ouaham Pende Prefecture, northwest CAR, 30 June 2008. A placard on the window says ‘AIDS is here and it kills. We must protect ourselves.’ More than six percent of the population, mainly women and children, are living with HIV and AIDS in CAR, one of the Africa’s highest prevalence rates. No anti-retroviral drugs, counseling and testing services are available upcountry.
