Pakistan struggles with unprecedented HIV infections in children

The number of HIV cases in southern Pakistan has spiked, and children seem to be the most affected.

    UN health teams are struggling to control an outbreak of HIV in southern Pakistan's Sindh province; most of those infected are children.

    Facing a lack of sufficient antiretroviral drugs, health authorities are concerned that if the HIV cases are left untreated, they could develop into Aids, which is far more difficult to treat.

    Al Jazeera's Laura Burdon-Manley reports.
