Dear Log,

«If there is anywhere in the world where a model for the treatment of HIV and Aids is needed, it is Botswana. This landlocked country in southern Africa has the highest incidence of the condition, almost 40% of its adult population being infected. The average life expectancy has just fallen below 40 years for the first time since 1950.
[...]
The strain prevalent here is subtype C. The developed world has subtype B and east Africa mostly A and B. But it is subtype C, the most virulent and prone to resistance, that is threatening to explode in China and India. So far, 51 different strains of subtype C have been identified in Botswana alone.»

--"Botswana battles against 'extinction'"
"Aids cuts life expectancy to 27"

But: Aids vaccine 'may be ready within five years'
