... Friends and Colleagues, We often hear about “AIDS ravaged Africa” and it is easy to imagine that the epidemic affects everyone equally, and thatit is a mindless killer, unable to be constrained by any effort. The fact is, however, that human behavior has a strong impact on how and why HIV spreads, and education is one of the silver bullets to fighting it. Education for women is especially important, and HIV/AIDS is in the process of destroying gains for women in Africa in the past 20 years. Education can be a silver bullet to AIDS spreading: people who have proper sex education know it’s dangers and how easy it is to prevent its spread. More importantly, however, women who are better educated hav...

The essay is a satire which conveys the author’s suggestions on how one should write about Africa. The main thesis that the author is trying to drive at is that there are so many harsh generalizations and misconceptions when people write about Africa but most of these are half-truths, if not completely lies. Binyavanga starts off his arguments by enumerating possible titles of articles that will be written about Africa. He then moves on to tell his readers about how Africa and its people must be described. Binyavanga elaborates further by citing some cultural practices and traditions in ...

However, after a couple of years, AIDS was reported among regular women and children as well as hemophiliacs and Haitians in the U.S. (Altman, 1983). Scientists finally identified Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) as the cause of AIDS and had become aware that AIDS was widespread in large parts of Africa.

For various reasons, the question has been asked if the majority of heterosexual AIDS transmission is actually the result of vaginal penetration or if the risk of disease transmission comes from a more exotic source.
