Some may think that the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa is old news but in reality, that is far from the case, said Grandmothers for Africa. Worldwide, 39 million people are living with HIV/AIDS, according to the 2022 United Nations statistics.
More than 3,000 adolescents and young girls are infected every week with HIV. The African grandmothers are working tirelessly to prevent and treat this while coping with the COVID-19 pandemic at the same time.
