Such a scenario takes
on even more devastating proportions in a society where AIDS
is a taboo subject for the majority of the population. Victims
of the AIDS epidemic in this country are often social outcasts,
who are often abandoned by spouses and families alike. Although
there are many attempts to better educate the Togolese society
in regards to AIDS, the virus today still remains shrouded
by ignorance, lack of education and even worse - shame.
