Video: Guatemala grapples with Aids

Health workers are concerned church's influence is making it hard to combat HIV.




    The spread of Aids is having a devastating effect on Guatemala.

    The church is hugely influential in the Central American state, where most people are devout Catholics.

    Health workers are concerned that the church's influence, rather than helping check the spread of Aids, is making it difficult to combat the pandemic.
