First, since the AIDS epidemic originated in Africa, most probably through the transmission of a mutated virus from primates, it has had more time to spread there than in other parts of the world. Indeed, there is a high probability that people were dying from AIDS-related causes in Africa long before the appearance of AIDS in North America led to its diagnosis. One doctor reports having treated patients in Africa in the 1970s with symptoms that were consistent with an AIDS diagnosis. Second, a lack of public education programs aimed at prevention, combined with a cultural resistance to the use of condoms, allowed the virus to spread.

To deal effectively with the crisis, African nations need to reduce both infection rates and mortality rates. They must use public education to change cultural attitudes to reduce infection rates. They also need access to the relatively inexpensive drug treatments to prevent mother-to-child transmission and accidental transmission to health-care workers. Both of these strategies are affordable enough to be viable options. With respect to mortality rates, these societies require affordable access to drug treatments.
