With only 40,000 of the 3.5 million people living with HIV/AIDS in Nigeria receiving anti-retroviral drug treatment, members of UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) are calling for large amounts of the drugs to become available in order to treat the growing pandemic. Nigeria ranks third in the world after India and South Africa in number of people living with HIV/AIDS. Every day one thousand Nigerians contract HIV and eight hundred die of AIDS and related diseases. Less than one percent of HIV-positive women are receiving treatment. The majority of children who are born HIV-positive, die before their fifth birthday from related infections. (Reuters Foundation)
