KENYAN AIDS ORPHANS WAIT FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT AT ITALIAN CLINIC.
Orphans suffering from AIDS wait for treatment at Cattolonge, an
Italian-run orphanage on the outskirts of Nairobi January 15, 2002.
More than 500 Kenyans die from AIDS each day, according to the health
ministry. The government is trying to encourage the use of condoms to
stop the spread of HIV/AIDS, but says its efforts are being hindered by
ignorance and church groups which condemn the use of contraceptives.
