Zambia offers free anti-AIDS drugs

In response to the large numbers of faculty dying from AIDS in recent years, the University of Zambia will provide free anti-AIDS drugs to HIV-positive faculty and students, as well as local residents and other university workers. Approximately 16.5 percent of Zambia’s population is HIV-positive, one of the lowest infection rates in the region.

The university hopes that many more people will be tested for HIV as a result of the program.
