The AIDS epidemic in Africa differs from that seen in North America and Europe. Based in part on results obtained from a unique natural 'experiment' involving the immigration of Ethiopians to Israel, Zvi Bentwich and colleagues suggest here that chronic parasite infection, leading to persistent immune stimulation of individuals in Africa, rather than the prevalent HIV-1 subtype, may account for the increased rate of progression of the disease there.
