we are talking about getting a cure for HIV and suddenly, an 'aggressive' version of the scourge is discovered in West Africa.

icycoolmik: Swedish scientists have identified a new strain of HIV that appears to progress much faster than most previously identified variations of the virus.

The new strain, known as A3/02, is a recombinant, meaning it is a cross between two previously identified HIV strains. Writing in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, Lund University researchers said that the infection moves from HIV to full-blown AIDS in about five years, nearly two- to two-and-a-half years faster than most previously known strains.


So far the new infection seems confined to West Africa.


WHY IS IT ALWAYS AFRICA? NOW IT'S WEST AFRICA. I hope that there is no 'political undertone' to this discovery.

Africa is not cursed. It is people who through their actions choose to become a curse to themselves.

- When a man has a wife, but chooses to sleep around with promiscuous University students (for one reason or the other) and contracts HIV, he has chosen to become a curse for himself.
- When a girl, instead of studying decides that she wants Peruvian hair, and chooses to sleep with promiscuous older men, she has chosen to become a curse for herself.
- When a man is given a contract to fix a road, and he chooses to not just inflate the price but also to do a bad, unsustainable job so that he can buy a hummer that year, he has chosen to become a curse to his community.
- When a student decides that it is better to pay someone to sit his exams than to do the hardwork, study and pass, he has chosen to become a curse to himself and anyone who employs him in the future.
- When we celebrate that 'brother' in church who just bought a new car, (even though we know he does dodgy deals) we choose to become a curse to ourselves.
- When we sell our votes for N10,000, we choose to become curses to ourselves and our children.

"Poverty made me do it." is no longer an excuse. In all the scenarios above, these people would have survived without having to seek shortcuts, but chose not to. Africa is not cursed. We bend down and select our curses for ourselves.

It is a result of lifestyle

Multinational drug companies are behind all these threats. There's economic depression in America and Europe. Big multinational pharmaceutical companies need your money. That's the end game.

The issue is not our libido, which may or may not be higher than Caucasians, but the fact that we carry on carelessly. Our people are ignorant or choose to remain ignorant to the fact that precautions need to be taken when engaging in an activity that can become destructive. The solution is simple: if you're going to engage in extramarital or premarital affair use a rubber. Simple!

If you’re getting married, get tested before going raw.

What's yet to be told is the number of females infected with HIV. Unfortunately, due to the anatomy of females and those that take it from the back, they are more likely to get infected from sleeping with an HIV infected male than a male sleeping with an HIV infected female.

About a week ago, I heard an alarming statistics over the radio that 92% of new HIV cases in the Washington DC area are black females, which makes me wonder what that number will be for females in Nigeria.

pretty_boi: .You asked why is it always Africa? My answer is "because we are fvvckng lazy." Imagine scientists from another continent telling us Jack & we believe. Where are our own scientists? Why don't they get to work & give us our own homegrown theories,findings,etc..? At least it would be things we can relate to better. All we do is sit around lazying & crying that we are being "victimized. " I hate mental laziness with the whole of my life. I'm one of those people that believe that "IF YOU DON'T LIKE SOMETHING/YOUR CONDITION, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT TILL IT CHANGES AT LEAST A LITTLE. DON'T JUST LAZY AROUND CRYING.
God Bless Nigeria. Amen.

I get where you're driving at and truly there are vast number of untapped herbs in Nigeria that could extract new pharmaceutical drugs but where is the "FUNDING" for the research?

And even if the funding is made available, Nigerians are naturally greedy mofos. And just to show you an example, wait and see what will happen to the ASUU money. grin grin

"There are some HIV types here in the United States that take as little as two years to develop into AIDS," he noted.
This information is particularly troubling in light of a new CDC report that found that since 2005, there has been a 48 percent increase in unprotected anal sex in the U.S. among men who have sex with men. Men who engage in risky sexual behavior are often unaware of their positive HIV status, the report found.

Another "pick and drop" move, dey might av picked d "aggressive strains" or better still grow it in their lab nd drop it into Africa where dey believed no scientist/scientists will stand up to question their findings nd take up d challenges of doing further research on d virus. They belief Africans az little or no knowledge about HIV? Did dey think we bleep anyhow? d last time I checked condom wasn't expensive nd most pharmaceutical shops runs out of it, better still U see many empty packs of condom in their shop. These ppl should know dt Africans aren't dt "dumb".

There may be many who doubt the authenticity of this report.

The report may be true or indeed the work of imaginative minds but whose fault is it?

How much research is going on in Nigeria to combat this 'scourge'?

Assuming this strain actually does exist how come we have to wait for scientists in a distant land to educate us?

Even if it is the figment of the imagination of a few pharmaceutical wheeler-dealers what hope do we have to debunk it?

I know people are promiscuous worldwide and Nigerians are no different.

In fact, with HIV known to be prevalent in Gay communities one should expect fewer cases in a predominantly heterosexual community such as ours.

Question is, how can we verify these claims if we would rather divert money for research, frustrate the intelligent, diligent students?

How does a university that has been on strike for months-on-end focus on a topic, carry-out diligent research, debate findings and reach a logical conclusion?

We deserve what we get because such is the way we've laid our bed. sad
