HIV/AIDS in Lesotho

I just added a new page on my blog for information about HIV/AIDS in Lesotho. I knew that Lesotho had a very high prevalence rate for HIV/AIDS (23%), but until today I had failed to really research it further. I failed to realize just how prevalent and serious it is. Here are just a few things I learned/realized:

1. Lesotho is ranked #3 in the world for its HIV/AIDS prevalence rate
2. Swaziland is #1 and Botswana is #2
3. Nearly 1 in 4 adults in Lesotho may have HIV/AIDS

Please click on the HIV/AIDS in Lesotho tab to find out more (and the links I included there have awesome interactive maps!).
