Abstract PIP: UNAIDS, AIDSCAP, and the Harvard School of Public Health held a seminar before the Vancouver AIDS Conference in the attempt to find agreement upon a statistical picture of the shape of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in various regions of the world. These three bodies corroborated to produce this paper describing the scope of HIV infection in sub-Saharan Africa, including discussion of HIV-2, explosions in the incidence of HIV infection, the presence of sexually transmitted diseases (STD), the safety of the blood supply, urban versus rural rates of HIV spread, the disproportionate risk young women have compared to other population subgroups of contracting HIV, migration and urbanization, the effect of economic development programs upon a population's risk of contracting HIV and other STDs, and the growing burden of caring for people with AIDS.
