as i was re-reading this thread today, i thought of that. in cases like that, not only is it sick that they did it, but it's sad to think they think this will cure them. now that little baby probably has HIV too.

Sadly that's not an isolated case either (as you said). I think it just shows why education and treatment for AIDS/HIV is so desperately needed in countries such as South Africa which are badly affected by these illnesses.

Sorry, I didn't speak very clearly.
What I meant is that if people believe that AIDS/HIV is cured by having sex with somone who is a virgin, then clearly there is a need for education in order to inform people of what the treatment for AIDS/HIV is. And treatment should be available for the very simple reason that nobody should be denied access to healthcare which could save or prolong their life.

What do HIV-stricken South Africans do, walk around with unicorns?

Well, where do you get your healthcare information from? A doctor, a hospital, school, television, radio, the internet? If none of those sources of information were available to you then perhaps you'd have some incorrect ideas about healthcare too?

I had heard about this myth some time ago, thank you.

What I found somewhat perplexing at the time was that the article in which I read about this stuff claimed that this myth led large numbers of *white* South Africans to rape young girls.
