Abstract:

Part 1. The statistics are never easy to hear. As of 2004, the Centers for Disease Control reported that about one-quarter of people suffering from HIV and AIDS were women. According to a UN survey conducted last year, women's share of the disease was about half. That disparity may show a vast increase in women who've contracted the HIV/AIDS. It may show the nebulous data that different organizations put out about the disease. Or, it may show a little bit of both. While the overall picture of AIDS may seem fuzzy, the focus is all too sharp for people who have the disease or who are working to combat its spread.

Part 2. Gail Johnson runs a South African nongovernmental organization called Nkosi's Haven. Named after her adoptive son who died of AIDS, Johnson provides a place where mothers with the disease and their children can live, work, and go to school. Johnson has a difficult job, especially because she is constantly out raising money for her cause. I sat down with Johnson when she was on a fundraising trip in the U.S. to talk about how she started Nkosi's Haven, and how she hopes to continue battling AIDS.

Part 3. These days, many news stories focus on AIDS in Africa or elsewhere in the world, but there are still many women living with HIV/AIDS right here in the United States. Independent producer Julia Applegate spoke to several women in Ohio who are HIV positive about their experiences.

Part 4. The spread of AIDS often comes from a lack of education about safe sex. In India, healthcare workers worry about the virus among the country's three million prostitutes and six million long-distance truck drivers. The Gates Foundation is funding a trucker education program designed to protect Indian truck drivers from getting HIV-AIDS when they spend time with prostitutes at truck stops. Miranda Kennedy reports.
