 April 2001 News Monitor
WP 28 Apr 2001 Six Red Cross workers were found dead on a muddy, remote road in northeastern Congo on Thursday in the deadliest attack on the international agency since six nurses were killed in their sleep at a hospital in Chechnya in 1996.
The 2000 and 2001 surveys both indicate that the overwhelming majority of deaths were related to disease and malnutrition, while a proportionately smaller number were directly attributable to violence.
The central idea was to transform by positive evolution of the concept of African unity as conceived during the creation of the OAU in 1963, to a more dynamic organisation, capable of preparing the continent to face the demands of globalisation.

 HIV and AIDS statistics for South Africa
According to their own estimate of total population size (which is another contentious issue), this implies that around 5.3 million South Africans were living with HIV at the end of 2003, including 230,000 children under 15 years old.
Until 1998 South Africa had one of the fastest expanding epidemics in the world, but the level of HIV prevalence is now growing more slowly.
For South Africa there are tremendous challenges remaining in the fields of HIV education, prevention and care.

 Gauteng Province - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Situated in the heart of the Highveld, Gauteng is the smallest province in South Africa with only 1.4% of the land area, but it is highly urbanised and has a population of 8,837,178 (2001 South African National Census), the second-largest after KwaZulu-Natal.
The Sesotho phrase was in turn derived from the Afrikaans "goud" (gold) plus the locative suffix "ng." When properly pronounced, the first letter of the name Gauteng is a guttural G, pronounced similarly to the "ch" in the German "achtung" or Scottish "loch." This guttural pronunciation is natural in both the Sesotho and Afrikaans languages.
The name Gauteng comes from the Sesotho phrase meaning Place of Gold, referring to the thriving gold industry in the province following the 1886 discovery of gold in Johannesburg.

 Jensen July 26, 2001 LONG VERSION
Booker T. Washington gained national fame for his "Atlanta Compromise" of 1895, whereby African Americans would concentrate on making themselves more productive and efficient, in order to first modernize their communities and themselves, while underplaying political confrontations or assertions of equal rights.
The census itself became a tool for identifying backward localities that most needed modernization, such as the inner city, the South, Cuba, and the Philippines.
Bureaus of municipal research were created in every major city to study ways to improve municipal management; schools and colleges everywhere were surveyed, as were entire cities, such as Pittsburgh.
