The last part of the program that I caught was a comment that the hospital was expecting things to get much worse because people from "the north" were ignorant about AIDS and were fleeing south. So this could quite possibly have been the area Haggis speaks of.The other -- newer -- point of view was put forward controversially at the conference by Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni. He has also cut back the AIDS crisis dramatically in his own country through the use of condoms, but now takes a slightly different approach.
At the conference, he stressed that most important of all is a loving relationship between a man and a woman, based on trust, but that people who cannot abstain from non-marital sex -- who cannot be faithful or are estranged -- should depend upon condoms. His strategy has been known as "ABC," or "Abstinence, Being faithful, and Condoms."
Yes, they do. At least some parts of Asia. There are decent reasons for this.Originally posted by RC:
I wonder if they do the same to people who visit or lived in Asia now?
AIDS has incredible repercussions.
"SUDAN: Disaster Looms and America Will Be Blamed
July 16, 2004: Nothing much has changed in Darfur, despite promises from the government to halt the attacks on non-Arab Sudanese by government supported Arab Sudanese militias, and the Sudanese armed forces as well. International pressure is building, but most nations are restricted, by their anti-American protests against U.S. operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The UN will have a very hard time agreeing on what to do, because many Arab countries are reluctant to criticize Sudan for its use of Arab militias to attack non-Arab Sudanese. But even if the UN approved military intervention, how do you get there? Darfur is over 500 kilometers from the Sudanese Red Sea ports, and borders land locked Chad (which is willing to help) and Libya (which is reluctantly willing to help, and is not land locked.) Mounting a military operation in Sudan is similar to what went on in Afghanistan in late 2001. You can't get many troops in there, and it's difficult to support them."
