Haiti health, Haiti Hospital, Haiti Medical
Haiti Medical News - Great News... The number of Haitians in Haiti who have tested positive for HIV has declined over the past decade. According to Haiti's Ministry of Public Health, the HIV infection rate in Haiti is now at 3.67 percent, a drop of nearly 10 percent...

This info was released in a statement by U.S. Embassy to commemorate World AIDS Day, this past Sunday, 1 Dec 2013.

More and more people in Haiti are now testing for HIV and AIDS the embassy says. The number of HIV test went from 58,433 in 2004 to 839,033 now.

Haiti once had one of the highest AIDS rates outside of Africa but that has dropped in part because of a massive influx of foreign aid that has made treatment and prevention more available.

What do you think about that?
