Summary:
South Africa is the country with the highest number of HIV positive people in the world. By the year 2000, an estimated 4.2 million people were infected with HIV; if present trends continue by 2010, 7 million will have died of the disease. State of Denial puts a human face on the millions affected by introducing us to six South Africans involved with the AIDS epidemic. It shows how they must fight not only the disease but the greed of the drug cartels and the neglect and inactivity of their own government in order to get treatment.
