Treatment, Care, and Support
Volunteer in Cameroon, 2003–2005
Family members grieve at a deuil, or mourning ceremony, on the outskirts of Bandjoun, Cameroon, in August 2004. Many Cameroonians deny the existence of AIDS and insist that many die as a result of the flu, pneumonia, or even sorcery. However, AIDS often leads to such deaths. This photo shows a "sorcery" victim's sister (holding a photograph of the victim) with her brothers and mother.
