HIV/AIDS in Ghana

One of the few blogs that I follow is written by a mom that I know who works as an adoption coordinator in Ghana. She raised a really interesting (and disturbing) issue in her latest post related to HIV Aids in Ghana. Take a look...

So much about what we have been discussing in our course is related to how health and human welfare is so dependent on the culture, traditions, and infrastructure of the country. While I can see both sides of the situation she raises; I still feel that this is yet another barrier to public health in Ghana.
