Aids dates from 1981 in the Western world and, originally, was problem in the gay male community. Since then it has spread world wide and , since it began in Africa, is a huge problem there with the first death from it occurring in 1959. Aids is not a 'gay' disease any more. Many conservative governments are ignoring the problem which only helps to spread the disease deeper into the population. As with anything, knowledge is power. Aids can be prevented, it cannot be cured. There is a new report that male circumcision helps prevent the spread of this killer disease in Africa where condoms generally aren't used. In the rest of the world, unprotected sex is like playing Russian Roulette. You never know if your partner is loaded. 

There is a history here:

This is a good question. Thanks for asking.
