Reducing the growth rate of HIV/AIDS
...AIDS was created to coordinate educational and medical programs to combat what the government described as a 'scourge.' One in eight children in a population of 18 million have lost one or both parents, either through war or AIDS. Seventeen cases of AIDS were recorded in Uganda in 1983; a decade later the figure was 43,875. The commission has estimated that at the end of 1993, 1,516,000 Ugandans were HIV-positive, and 165,000 actually had AIDS. Within five years these figures were projected to rise to 1,920,000 with HIV and 251,000 with AIDS". (Wall, 1994, p. 707)
