It is estimated that there are 5.5 million people in South Africa living with HIV / AIDS. A relatively small percentage of them are on highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). As their CD4 cell counts decrease, they become prone to developing certain opportunistic infections and tumours. A large percentage of them (70 - 75%) develop ocular disease during the course of their illness - it may be the first sign of HIV infection.
