HIV/AIDS deaths are down in South Africa -- But most are still unacknowledged

After peaking in 2007, AIDS mortality in South Africa has decreased with the widespread introduction of effective antiretroviral therapy but HIV/AIDS remains the leading cause of death in South Africa, according to the new research. Researchers emphasize that, within the limitations of the study, It is clear HIV/AIDS is under-reported as a cause-of-death in the vital statistics in South Africa, with 93 percent of AIDS deaths misattributed to other causes. In the study, most likely AIDS deaths were attributed to "ill-defined natural causes," tuberculosis, lower respiratory infections, or "pseudonyms for HIV/AIDS."
