HIV /AIDS are contracted by individuals who elect a risky permiscuos life style, it maybe fun one, but deadly. But what about the helpless animals that against their will is chopped up in slaughter houses for food products and is inhumanly tortured in lab experiments. Who should care about these critters? It is kind of oxymoron to call good treatment as humanly, because it is proven since September 01 that humans are far more cruel and vicious than wild animals can ever be. Unlike animals that kill to eat and survive, human kills millions for GOD (gold, oil, drugs) and NWO (No World Order).

Bush AIDS Policies: Insult Added to Misery.

The moral bomb dropped on AIDS victims by Bush,
exacerbated the challenge to provide prevention and care.
PEPFAR was a smokescreen for this backward policy.
Now, we must deal with the economics of sex trades
and Human Slavery, which will carry AIDS even further
to vulnerable populations.

That was a moving documentary. Thanks for posting it.

Maybe some here don't appreciate the effort to save lives and indeed whole societies as being moral, but I wonder what would be said had nothing been done....

A "good beginning", is a bit of an understatement.

I remember reading an article some years back that did some number crunching to the effect that had nothing been done, that in some areas there wouldn't be enough healthy people by this time to take care of the sick, let alone maintain the infrastructure of their communities. It projected a complete breakdown of society in the hardest hit nations.

Quite the achievement to have not just stopped this from happening, but to have reversed that trend.

You have your doomsday movies like "The Andromeda Strain" that have plotted out the results of a fast moving virus run amock, but with HIV/AIDS we have a "creeper". Left unchecked, the results are the same for civilization as we know it.

And I think the CDC in Atlanta would agree.

With that in mind, it's my hope PEPFAR will continue to be funded to the max.
