The Orphaned Continent

`Breaking the Silence about Aids in Africa'.
Why Africa's Aids epidemic continues to claim 6,000 lives a day and what the West is doing about it. Robin Lustig discovers why the African situation is so different to that in the US and Western Europe, and Orla Guerin, Greg Barrow and Stephen Sackur look at moves the West is making to help combat this major catastrophe. To date Aids has killed some 14 million people in sub-Saharan Africa.
