By Vision Reporter MRS. Janet Museveni, wife of the President, has said social problems have accelerated the HIV/AIDS problem in Africa and that the disease was no longer a mere health problem which can be solved by medical solutions. She made these remarks on Monday at the International Conference Centre, where the visiting First Lady of Ivory Coast, Mrs. Simone Gbagbo and her group of experts were briefed about the different approaches that Uganda had adopted to attain positive results in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Mrs. Museveni said poverty, malnutrition, poor housing facilities, famine, poor sanitary conditions, inaccessibility to public health services and illiteracy, among other social problems prevailing in our societies, had accelerated the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa. She urged all those involved in fighting the disease to put emphasis on these problems. Ends
