After a long time, AIDS was also found among cocaine and heroin users, whom were supposed to inject it.

UNAIDS recorded more than 25 million death cases due to the mankiller AIDS. Following gay men, sub-Saharan African's also suffered. Researchers claim that it may have got from chimpanzees to humans around the year 1930 in Central Africa.

It was worse being 2/3rd of people with AIDS all over the world were in the sub-Saharan Africa.

Carol Bellamy, the former Unicef director, said: In a survey, covering 7 countries life expectancy of HIV patients has reduced to 40 years or even below.

From the most dreadful state it has came to a state which can be managed with pills - AIDS researchers says.

Experts say Africans are the huge to die (nearly 100 million) of AIDS by 2025. UNAIDS spends more, to provide drugs and prevention campaigns across the world and expects the numbers to come down in future.
