Champs de Mars, Port-au-Prince. Haiti.
13 year old, HIV positive, this girl is earning her living from working as a prostitute. As she charges not much for sex even many of the poor become her clients, what results in a fast and wide spread of AIDS. An estimated 16,000 lives are lost each year to AIDS in Haiti, and tens of thousands of children have been orphaned by the epidemic.  (image by Alice Smeets)
