South Sudan experiences a generalised HIV epidemic, with concentration of high prevalence in urban areas, basically in the Equatorial region. According to UN AIDS, nearly 3% of the adult population is HIV positive, with 13,000 deaths every year and 18,000 new infections annually. However, these figures should be likely higher if there was a more accurate evaluation among the rural population. / AFP / Albert Gonzalez Farran (Photo credit should read ALBERT GONZALEZ FARRAN/AFP/Getty Images)
