A virtual Africa exhibit brings the horrors of AIDS home through a free, interactive display open to the public.

The Pima County Fair is hosting the "World Vision Experience: AIDS" exhibit, which is slated to visit 40 cities during its national tour in 2009.

Visitors walk through a replica of an African village and experience the effects of the pandemic as they listen to a personal audio track relating the story of one of four children — Kombo, Babirye, Emmanuel, and Mathabo.

The exhibit takes visitors on a journey into AIDS-affected communities in Africa, where about 25 million people are infected with HIV. More than 150,000 people are expected to visit the exhibit during the 2009 tour.

Entrance to the exhibit is included with admission to the Pima County Fair, from April 16 to 26.

The Pima County Fairgrounds are located at 11300 S. Houghton Road.
