Those poor Africans

The following is a video from PEPFAR. (The Presidents Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief)

I agree we should end the stigma and discrimination surrounding HIV/AIDS...but video's like the one seen on the PEPFAR website don't tell the full truth about elminating HIV/AIDS. It makes the issue as a "oh those poor African's" Who comes up with the discourse of the issue. The virus is more then just a "poor African" issue. People here in our own country are still being affected in great numbers. Although the highest rising group of new infections in the USA is between MSM's there is still a great number of hetero infections. We need to change the face of the epidemic, because it affects us all.
