3. HIV/ AIDS
As per hiv.gov, approximately 17.5 million women live with AIDS. Moreover, unfortunately, in the sub-Saharan area, women are approximately 61% of the total population suffering from HIV. Especially in these areas, where women’s rights are not respected in general, they cannot generally refuse to have sex with their partners and have little support from the right institutions to which they are predisposed to seek treatment and diagnostic. Further, women make 20 percent of those new patients who are infected by AIDS each year, as per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
