death in the world. Untreated disease caused by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
has a case fatality, which approaches 100%.1 The burden of disease is heaviest in Africa.
Out of 28 millions deaths due to AIDS world wide at the end of 2002, 70% have occurred
in this continent.2 The first case of AIDS in Pakistan was reported in 1987 in Lahore. Late
