Africa Leads Fight Against HIV


May 24 2013 (IPS) - With its youthful population, fast growing economies and an expanding middle class, Africa has much to celebrate on 25th May, Africa Day.

This year Africa Day also marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) in 1963.
