Africa Aids orphans 'may top 18m'

Sub-Saharan Africa will be the main focus of the campaignUN charity Unicef says 18 million children in sub-Saharan Africa could be orphaned by Aids by the end of 2010.
The warning comes as the children's charity launches a global campaign to help the disease's youngest victims.
Unite For Children, Unite Against Aids, will focus on Africa but also target central Asia and eastern Europe.
Unicef says millions who lose their parents to Aids get no financial support and less than five percent of HIV-positive children get medical help.
The campaign, to be launched on Tuesday in New York, will enlist the help of goodwill ambassador Jemima Khan and special ambassador to Unicef, former James Bond actor Roger Moore.
