AIDS[edit]

Quick Googling finds plenty of info about AIDS in Equatorial Guinea that contradicts the "info" below, so I've cut it out for time being. Jpatokal 22:19, 20 August 2007 (EDT)

AIDS The Government do not acknowledge the presence of AIDS in their country. It is an offence even to have an AIDS test. There are lots of pretty African girls in Malabo but the doctor (no names for safety) estimates that 80+% of females over 14 are infected.

Smallpox vaccine?[edit]

"proof of smallpox, yellow fever, & cholera vaccinations." Yellow Fever, yea, but there's no way the rest of this is right. I'll continue searching, though, b/c I don't want to leave any rock unturned.

Regions[edit]

There should be just three regions: Rio Muni, Bioko, & Annobón. AHeneen 12:14, 22 January 2010 (EST)

So that's basically two islands and one region for the whole mainland country? Not saying that's wrong, just want to be clear. --Burmesedays 12:45, 22 January 2010 (EST)
It was my understanding that this is the way EG is divided. Rio Muni is just around 150km wide and 100km tall. However, after reading about the geography of it, there is a narrow coastal plain with about 3/4ths of Rio Muni being rolling hills and lots of valleys. Wikipedia topo map When it comes to content, I don't know that Rio Muni can be divided much, given the little information there is about it to begin with. So keeping it as one region seems fine to me. AHeneen 14:25, 22 January 2010 (EST)
Done. --Burmesedays 04:16, 23 January 2010 (EST)

A little contradiction here?[edit]

Here are some rare photos; why not have a look at them? --CurvyEthyl 20:43, 16 February 2012 (EST)

I saw that too...was very surprised. Not sure what is contradictory, though. The page mentions that there's a lot of oil wealth and most things are expensive. Seems similar to Luanda. Pretty easy to level slums and build fancy building when you're a filthy rich dictator...I'm fairly certain that within a couple kilometers of these pictures, you can find plenty of locals living in poverty. And that's just Malabo...from my understanding, the mainland is much more typical of the region. AHeneen 17:01, 18 February 2012 (EST)

Portuguese[edit]

The Portuguese was declared an official language of the country, it is best not change it? Livroturistico, 29 March 2013 (EDT)
