More than a quarter of the South African schoolgirls has HIV, the virus that can cause AIDS. At least 28 percent are positive compared with 4 percent of the boys. This was said by the South African Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi.

"It is clear that it is not young boys who sleep with these girls. It is old men we need to tackle " , the minister said, “they destroy our children. This must not continue. We must put an end to it.''

State Clinics
In 2011, 94,000 schoolgirls, according Motsoaledi, became pregnant. 77,000 Girls had an abortion in state clinics. Among the pregnant schoolgirls are children aged 10 to 14 years who have contracted the virus. In South Africa, more than 5 million people are HIV-infected, 10 percent of all South Africans.
