From Ants to AIDS

The Experiences of a Medical Missionary in Africa

ISBN: 978-1-7923-4354-4
By: Johnson, James


I have entitled this book, From Ants to AIDS, because It encompasses the small things of Africa, like ants, to the large problems, like AIDS, and all the everyday experiences of life one must go through living in a land where so much is different from what we have here in the U. S. The many things we take for granted, like clean water, electricity, available food, good roads and available health care are lacking there.
