The Malawi Situation

Malawi is the poorest country in the world that is not either involved in, or recovering from, civil war. Life expectancy is now 39 years old due to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The Malawi government estimates that there are now more than 2 million orphans out of a total population of 11 million people.
