    Kenya to Roll Out Drug to Curb HIV Infection
    March 17, 2017 — Thousands of HIV-negative Kenyans will for the first time be placed on daily antiretroviral medication, or ARVs, in a bid to avert new infections. The new program seeks to lower the country's HIV transmission rate to individuals who face a substantial risk of contracting HIV, such as rape victims and HIV-negative drug users.

    PrEP helps but it is not a magic bullet. There have been break-through infections reported in the last year or two even when used properly.

    Figure it out yourself. Wear condoms, get health insurance.

    Not my problem if you want to f*** around. All the power to you, but accept the consequences of your actions.

    Abolish all current funding.

    Because "you just want to kill children with AIDs" is a perfectly reasonable interpretation.

    Thanks for outing yourself as an ideologue.

    HIV butt disease is still floating around.

    Poopers young and old should keep their bungholes closed for business indefinitely.

    It's sad when the rug rats inherit AIDS from their moms or get it from blood transfusions.

    I think most of the hemophiliacs are dead now because the blood supply was contaminated for a long time.

    There are so many ways to get AIDS but the main road is still the Hershey Bar Highway.

    Do the opposite of what California did. Make people with STDs pay for it either criminally or civilly. I don't know if you currently can or not but if not then they should allow someone infected with an STD to sue the person that gave it to them. Hopefully this will scare the crap out of those ****ing morons and maybe they will stop having sex or be behind bars and only be able to **** other infected people.

    Has doctors and researchers looked into the HIV virus' effect on the DNA and RNA of the individual(s) infected?

    Sexually transmitted? Blood transmitted? DNA - RNA transmitted?

    Does the virus live within the Protein bases of the Body and the DNA and RNA protein?


    -



    The student entered class and sat down. He looked up, raised his hand and waited quietly until called upon.

    'Yes'? The teacher acknowledged.

    'Mr. Brownstone, I think my school paperback is not up to par'.

    'Paperback'?, Mr. Brownstone questioned in reply.

    'Yes. My paperback is not up to par.'

    Mr. Brownstone was confused. Was the student trying to pull some kind of wool over his eyes? The student was sent to the Principle's office.

    As the student entered into the office, the Principle reiterated, 'What paperback are you referring to and what exactly are you trying to say,' the Principle asked.

    'The paperback I'm using isn't up to par. Why am I in trouble because my paperback is not up to par'?

    The Principle thought this was a prank and so the other members were called.

    What paperback is this student referring to, they all asked as they sat around the big round table. Should we call police? What should we do?

    Towards the end of the day the parent arrived to pick up the student. The parent was addressed and asked, 'Do you know what your child means by his paperback is not up to par'?

    'Oh, sure', the parent replied.

    The parent held up the class Text Book. 'This', the parent resounded. 'This is the paperback'.
