HIV and AIDS could kill more than a third of Papua New Guinea’s adult population within 20 years according to a new study from the Centre for Independent Studies.
The study author Miranda Darling Tobias says young women are being targeted by superstitious Papua New Guineans who believe witchcraft is responsible for AIDS-related deaths.
This new report on HIV/AIDS in Papua New Guinea predicts that a million people will die of the disease if the government does not tackle the problem head on. However, UN Aids says a report outlining the impact of HIV/Aids on Papua New Guinea has been over dramatised, reported by Radio New Zealand.
