Which he wouldn't do if it actually existed in the AIDS resulting variety.... AIDS is just another name for poverty ( new name for the same old
symptoms) and that is part and parcel of why Mbeki REALLY denies the link. If you wish to call Mbeki insane do so for his support for and
implementation of neo liberal economic policies which have made the poorest in South-Africa poorer in the last fifteen years.
South Africa is undergoing an AIDS explosion.
South Africa is undergoing a explosion in acute poverty the results being worse than 'AIDS' is doing anywhere else where people are having as much
of the same unprotected sex. Why didn't 'AIDS' go anywhere in the US and the rest of the west?
Its going to destroy that country, especially if the so-called 'super aids' variant appears there.
What is destroying South-Africa is TB and the same old poverty related diseases. Nothing has changed but the fact that western medicine finds
continued means of treating the same old problems with ever more expensive ( and patentable) health destroying drugs.
There is apparently a large problem with newborns getting AIDS from unifected mothers in S.Africa too, its thought to be resulting from
improperly sterilized needles.
And if you believe that you will probably believe anything. Improperly sterilized needle's would be used on babies in which ways exactly? Where in
the world are needle's used twice?
So that's giving the new generation a double whammy, setting up a set of them that are infected from birth, already, by virtue of the fact
that they're in a place that couldnt' properly sterilize their needles,
What's with the needle sterilization? There used to be a time in South-Africa where bandages were reused ( washed) but that isn't even done anymore
because frankly people have become too lazy ( we keeping losing hundred if not thousands of our best traine nurses and doctors to the UK and
elsewhere) and funds too easy to come by.
I don't know where people came up with the idea that the South-African medical sector reuses needle's but frankly it's stupid and speaks to the
nonsense people will believe about 'the poor' to escape responsibilty for the crimes of the first world upon the third.
in a low economic sectory, not getting the best medication to treat the disease,
Actually the drugs are quite cheap if you are allowed to buy them but since it's hard to suffer the penalties of being outside the WTO you accept it
and then pay 200 times more for the patented aids drugs. Basically it then becomes hard or impossible for the government to fund these treatment even
if they believed in the root of the problem.
living amoung the unifected population that seems to also be picking up the disease and spreading it rapidly...
Actually the official numbers shows a decline in growth but since it's all just estimations ( exit polls but without simple yes/no answers) based on
what you classify as a aids related health issue no one really knows.
