AIDS - a threat to rural Africa
   Of the 36,1 million people living with HIV/AIDS, an overwhelming 95 percent live in developing countries. And within those countries, AIDS is becoming a greater threat in rural areas than in cities. In absolute numbers, more people living with HIV reside in rural areas. The epidemic is spreading with alarming speed into the remotest villages, affecting all aspects of rural well being, agricultural production and possibilities for future sustainable development. Read about the threat to rural Africa. 2004

AIDS epidemic worsens in rural areas
   1 December 2006, Rome ­  FAO tackles problem on several fronts  ­ Despite improvements in HIV prevalence rates in some countries, the epidemic is continuing to worsen in rural areas in the developing world, where up to 70 percent of the population depend on agriculture for subsistence, and the spread of HIV and AIDS is further intensifying poverty and vulnerability, FAO said on World AIDS Day.
“The AIDS epidemic is having a devastating impact on rural populations in developing countries. The heavy loss of agricultural labour in countries where the majority of the population lives in rural areas is likely to affect productivity, food production, food security and poverty for decades to come,” said Marcela Villarreal, Director of FAO’s Gender and Population Division.
”Even in countries where antiretroviral treatment possibilities are increasing, it is unlikely that they will be made available to a large number of people in poor rural areas. By undermining food production, the epidemic also aggravates the vicious circle of hunger and poverty,‘ said Villarreal. 2006
