:: Xinhuanet - English ::: "JOHANNESBURG, April 7 (Xinhuanet) -- Ten percent of South African youth are infected with HIV, and young women, who were often forced into unwanted sex, are the worst affected, according to a new survey released here on Wednesday.

The survey of 12,000 young people aged between 15 and 25, who were interviewed by the reproduction health research unit of Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg, showed that one in 10 youth had contracted the virus that can lead to AIDS. "

This is a problem we need to be focusing on.
