Access to life: Haiti

Haiti and the Dominican Republic together account for three-quarters of HIV infections in the Caribbean. Although it is one of the poorest countries in the world, Haiti is making steady progress in providing antiretro­viral therapy to people with AIDS. Transmission of HIV happens mainly through unprotected sex, and while condom use is becoming more accepted in cities, poor women in rural areas remain at high risk of being infected.
