Thanks to God, the Congo does not lead the HIV/AIDS race! There are a lot of countries ahead of Congo. In this deadly race you do not want to win.
Officially, Congo's HIV/AIDS adult rate is just over four percent. Overall, Sub-Saharan Africa is heavily affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Somalia and Senegal have rates around one percent. But Botswana, Lesotho, and Swaziland have rates that exceed 23 percent.
HIV/AIDS is not the number one killer in Congo. Other preventable and treatable diseases like malaria, diarrhea, and malnutrition are the killers. But HIV/AIDS awareness is still needed.
