Papua New Guinea, Pacific:

AIDS is an impending scourge with HIV infections increasing at an alarming rate, approaching a pandemic comparable to that of sub-Saharan Africa. Lack of awareness is a major challenge: mostly spread through sexual immorality, HIV is often attributed to all kinds of causes, some superstitious. TSCF(IFES), Anglicans (Anglicare) and Baptists are just three ministries educating on causes of AIDS, removing the associated stigma and cultivating biblical lifestyles so as to eradicate the infection.
