Number of Aids Orphans Hits 13 Million


The number of children in the world who are thought to be orphans because their parents have died of Aids is now estimated to be more than 13 million according to a report given at the International Aids conference yesterday.

India has the highest number of orphans, but it is in Sub-Saharan Africa where the percentage of children orphaned is the highest. In Zimbabwe and Lesotho it is thought that 20% of all children will be Aids orphans within 8 years.

And there are warnings that "Even if we could stop the spread of HIV/Aids today, the numbers of orphans would increase for the next decade," because so many adults are infected.
