  • The disease Aids is spread through deceit and Ignorance not through polygamy. Monogamy and polygamy balances each other out like Newton’s third law. The real problem is the disease and lack of education. The Woman in Africa need to find men that cares about their health and their wives health. If they had more control over their land and resources that might decrease the aids infection rate. I think the countries that are using the resources should give them free health care and better education, because the disease is not going stay in a bubble around Africa, and they are on the frontline.
    Who knows were it came from? Ignorance-is men sleeping with children or albino people thinking it will cure the virus. Diversity
