Hans Rosling on HIV: New facts and stunning data visuals

I wouldn’t normally use this forum just to post a Youtube video, but I felt this one hits pretty close to home with what’s going on with the HIV/AIDS scene here in Botswana. During a TED talk, Hans Rosling, a doctor and researcher who is especially enthusiastic for giving visually stimulating presentations on global statistics, discusses the changing percentages of HIV infections over time, income, and location.  He highlights Botswana, and shows just how relatively high the HIV rate is here as compared to the rest of the world. It’s important to also note that the issues he brings up in terms of why HIV is so abundant in Southern Africa – multiple concurrent partnerships, lack of condom use, and intergenerational sex – are some of the key issues we face on a daily basis in our behavior change and prevention programs.
