eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) Facts
- HIV prevalence rate of >28% (highest in the world)
- Life expectancy of only 49 years (and declining population)
- 80,000 children orphaned by HIV/AIDS (and another 40,000 orphaned by other causes)
"Eswatini struggles beneath its burden of poverty. The HIV/AIDS epidemic, despite recent successes, has resulted in orphans and vulnerable children now accounting for an estimated 15% of the population. Numerous NGOs work to help the most vulnerable in society – helping people to help themselves rather than simply providing handouts."
