15 YEARS OLD WITH A 90% CHANCE OF DYING FROM AIDS

A 15-YEAR-OLD BOY LIVING IN BOTSWANA HAS A 90% CHANCE OF DYING OF HIV/AIDS DURING HIS LIFETIME, ACCORDING TO NEW ANALYSIS OF WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION STATISTICS.

BOTSWANA HAS THE HIGHEST INSTANCE OF HIV INFECTION IN THE WORLD

OVER ONE IN THREE OF THE POPULATION IS INFECTED

ONLY A RADICAL CHANGE IN SEXUAL BEHAVIOR WILL HALT THE EPIDEMIC. USE OF ALCOHOL REDUCES THE LIKELIHOOD THAT YOU WILL PRACTICE SAFE SEX AND USE A CONDOM

IF A PATIENT RAN OUT OF DRUGS, OR STOPPED TAKING THEM BECAUSE HE OR SHE FELT BETTER, THE RESULTS COULD BE DEVASTATING. THE VIRUS COULD DEVELOP RESISTANCE TO THE DRUGS, MAKING THE INFECTION UNTREATABLE

BE SMART STAY ALIVE PRACTICE THE ABCs
OF SAFE SEX and DO NOT DRINK

A = ABSTAIN FROM SEX
B = BE FAITHFUL TO ONE PARTNER
C = CONDOM USE EVERY TIME

ALCOHOL IS A DRUG
