Cure for aids: marry a virgin
A heartbreaking story from Zambia, where aids is a major problem. This is made worse by men like the traditional healer in this item, who arranges a marriage between an older man who has aids and a young, healthy girl. The man is told he will be cured of aids like this, and the girl knows she's sure to get aids but she persists because a marriage will give her some financial security.
