There are new cases of HIV every day in Africa, and though its population is only 12% of the world's population, Africa is estimated to have more than 60% of the AIDS-infected cases. Often, it is brought to villages by itinerant laborers who bring the disease back to their wives from cities and, in many cases,  the prostitutes they visit. Many international non-profit organizations work throughout the continent to increase condom awareness, promote condom use, and offer subsidized testing. Mali has a very low incidence of HIV.
