The last week has found the majority of my hospitalized patients having HIV related illnesses.  Yesterday 11 of the 14 ladies in Ward 1 were HIV positive and 5 of them also have active TB.  

There are days when I think the number of HIV patients in Africa is underestimated based on the numbers I am seeing in my small slice of the continent.  The good news is that more HIV patients are receiving education and treatment.
