Japan and HIV/AIDS

The World Health Organization cites Japan as one of the most likely candidates for a new wave of HIV infections, with estimates for combined AIDS/HIV cases as high as 50,000 for 2010. This follows a 34% surge in the rate of infection in 2001-2002.

"Japan will be ground zero for the next epidemic of HIV infections in Asia," says John F Mancuso, a representative of VitaSoul Inc, a volunteer group that conducts activities to increase AIDS awareness in Japan. "This will become a national crisis and can very easily bring the medical system of this country to its knees."
