Look at the notes and the summary below. To help organise the summary, copy and paste the appropriate connecting words from the list below into the gaps in the summary.
- HIV/AIDS global impact
- fastest growth in Europe
- 1995–2003 new infections (WHO report)
- Western Europe doubled: 365,000+
- Central and Eastern Europe 27,000→370,000
- 2 implications (i) limits on individual governments (ii) global travel →spread of diseases
- in fact
- according to
- the implications of this
Although we hear a lot about HIV/AIDS in Africa, in fact the fastest growth in the disease is happening in Europe. According to a World Health Organization report, between 1995 and 2003 the number of new infections in Western Europe doubled to more than 365,000, and has also increased in the rest of the continent. The implications are twofold. First, it shows the limitations of individual countries in preventing the spread of the infection. Second, the popularity of global travel means that diseases will continue to spread.
When you write up your notes as a summary, part of the task is to build in connections between the ideas in the summary.
