UN Warns of 20 Million AIDS Orphans in Africa

October 1, 2003

On Tuesday, at the 3rd Tokyo International Conference on African Development, UN World Food Program Executive Director James Morris said there are already 11 million African AIDS orphans, and the number could rise to 20 million by 2010. "Orphans go to school less often, orphans are more poorly nourished, have worse health," Morris said, saying the scenario for African children "potentially is the largest humanitarian crisis the world's ever known."
