HIV across the world

HIV affects people all over the world. In groups, try to work out an answer to why there are so many more people living with HIV in some parts of the world compared to others. Try to come up with 3 main reasons.

Not all the places where there are large numbers of people living with HIV are in the developing world – for example approximately 1.5 million people living with HIV are in Eastern Europe. How do you account for this?

Now watch these interviews for some explanations. After watching, discuss the differences between what the interviewees say about HIV across the world.
