Many people in the US will recall the aids epidemic of the 1980s. This was when many charities and organizations started to help those infected and to combat HIV transmission by providing Aids Prevention programs.
Despite strong efforts from many groups, HIV and AIDS prevention remain significant healthcare issues in the US. It is easy to overlook the national issue with global problems and funding sent to African projects.
There is a clear issue of financing in America and work to do AIDS prevention. Since the beginning of that epidemic, 675,000 people have died of AIDS-related illnesses in the country.
