                 HIV/AIDS: Sweden To Donate $1.4 Million For
                      Education In Malawi
       
                      Sweden announced yesterday it would donate $1.4 million for two programs
                 aimed at teaching Malawian youth aged 10 to 25 about the need to practice safe
                 sex to guard against HIV/AIDS.
                      Fourteen percent of Malawi's population of 9.9 million is infected with HIV or is
                 suffering with AIDS, according to Swedish International Development Cooperation
                 Agency spokesperson Anna Runeborg. She added that one-quarter of girls are
                 forced to quit high school because of pregnancy. "Sexual education is one of the
                 most important steps in the efforts to reduce the spreading of HIV and AIDS in the
                 country," she said (Associated Press, 1 Feb).
                      Earlier reports indicated that of Malawi's HIV-positive population, only 30 have
                 access to anti-retroviral drug therapy
      (UN Wire, 1 Nov 2000).
