HIV Infection and AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa: Current Status, Challenges, and Opportunities

Kharsany and Karim (2016) carried out a systematic review looking into the epidemiology of HIV infections across sub-Saharan Africa covering the factors that promote high incidence and mortality rates. Moreover, it investigates the priorities for mitigating the progression of HIV to an epidemic. It considers the means of maximizing the usage of the already limited resources to achieve these objectives. These objectives were diverse making the discussion widely informative but poorly focused.

For instance, the variation may be demonstrated by the difference in linguistics by the sound, phonetically, or by the structure, grammatically.
