Johannesburg, South Africa

In 2010, some 280,000 South Africans died of HIV/AIDS. A 2007 UNAIDS  report estimated that 5,700,000 South Africans had HIV/AIDS, or just under 12% of South Africas population. This mixed media reportage feature speaks to some of the voices in a Johannesburg community about their problems, and features the charitable work of the Bishop Simeon Trust.
