Aids fears for Haiti's displaced

With millions homeless and jobless after quake, many turn to prostitution to survive.

    It has been 100 days since a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti, killing more than 200,000 people and leaving 1.5 million others homeless.

    With millions of people unemployed and living on the streets, there has been a rise in prostitution of as much as 20 per cent, leading to fears of a significant rise in Aids cases.
