NPR's Brenda Wilson reports from Zimbabwe on how the AIDS epidemic is disturbing the balance of family life there. In Zimbabwe, the stigma of not bearing children is causing the rampant spread of the AIDS virus. Children are being infected through a process of transmission from father to mother, then to the child during pregnancy, childbirth, or even during breastfeeding.
