33.2 million people now live with HIV or AIDS.
5700 people die from AIDS every day.
Every fifteen seconds, another person age 15-24 becomes infected with HIV/AIDS.
The number of women living with HIV has tripled in the last two decades.
At least half of all new infections are among people under the age of 25.
AIDS kills one child every minute.

More than 25 million people have died of AIDS since 1981.
I have personally lost 12 friends. I have 3 that I know of that are HIV+

There is no cure.

My godfather died of AIDS 10 years ago and I remember him every day. I hope doctors make a cure soon.

There are many young people with AIDA in Bulgaria too, mostly young.

Life is a tradegy. We all end up in horrific ways.

I heard in the news that a guy in Northern Europe had a bone marrow transplant because he had leukemia. He also had aids, and after the transplant he no longer had either! He was cured! Apparently Northern Europeans have a gene which allows for a sort of aids cure. Try looking it up as I'm probably getting it all mixed up. They're doing studies to see how they can copy this gene in order to cure anyone with aids.
