Revolving Door In Africa: Prevention vs Treatment

I was perusing the Washington Post one Tuesday afternoon-I came upon an article entitled "Best Kept Secret For HIV Free Africa". The article discusses how U.S funding for birth control has been decreased in Africa, and how antiretrovial drugs are the main treatment and initiative for HIV infected Africa. The article continues to emphasize that science and research proves that birth control is more effective, but unfortunately, the U.S Government has decided that antiretrovial drugs will continue to be the focal point in the struggle to help developing nations in Africa. For those who dont know, Antiretrovial drugs are medications for the treatment of HIV. I would like to emphasize the word treatment. Antiretrovial drugs help to slow the HIV virus from entering different cells in the human body. Basically, the person continues to have the virus, it just takes the virus longer to spread through the body. Some may consider it to prolongate sickness and death-But that is just opinions, not facts.

Prevention vs Treatment
The biggest problem with medicine in the 21st century is the focus of treating symptoms; never its causes. Oh, you have a severe cold? Never mind how you obtained it, just take this Nyquil and sleep until you forget all about the coughing, sneezing, and sore throat. Oh, you lost your sex drive, take this Viagra pill and it will give you an erection, don't take into consideration what created your inability to have sex. Unfortunately, our "prevention over treatment" mentality is what we are using in order to prevent HIV/AIDS in Sub-Sahara Africa. We are spending a lot of time and money on the implementation of antiretrovial drugs; instead, we should be advocating more convenient methods of birth control to the developing nations of Africa. More emphasis on prevention is what the U.S Government should be demonstrating. There are 2 million HIV infected children in Africa, of these 2 million, 90% contracted the disease from their mother during birth. So, Why isnt the U.S Government promoting more birth control in Africa?

Politics As Usual
To answer the above question look no further than to the Bush Admistration. In 2003, Bush created the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The money funded by PEPFAR is predominantly spent on antiretrovial drug treatment. PEPFAR does condone the distribution of condoms; but they do not support any other forms of birth control. PEPFAR refuses to help fund any organizations that promote any forms of birth control (except condoms).I would like to mention that a majority of PEPFAR's board members are neo-conservative Republicans.There really isn't much condom usage in developing African nations; This concludes that birth control in developing African nations is virtually obsolete. A "revolving door" of HIV and AIDS is spinning in Africa. Without condoms and other forms of birth control-citizens are transmitting HIV to one another through unprotected sex-as well as, giving birth to HIV infected babies.

I remember the first time I went through a revolving door,I was six years old. The door was intriguing to me because it just kept spinning, and I kept following it in a circle. Even though I was dizzy from all the spinning, I kept following the door because I didnt know any better, it was entertainment. After five minutes of amusement, my mother finally grabbed me and told me to stop! When will the U.S and other nations grab Africa from their revolving door? Will we continue to let politics ruin our morale. Now that Bush is about to leave office, the next President should improve on the mishaps of PEPFAR; he or she should also realize that there is a revolving door spinning in the United States as well.

  1. "Oh, you have a severe cold? Never mind how you obtained it, just take this Nyquil and sleep until you forget all about the coughing, sneezing, and sore throat. Oh, you lost your sex drive, take this Viagra pill and it will give you an erection, don't take into consideration what created your inability to have sex."

    when you think about it, that' is exactly right. and i'm suprised bush even had time to set up a program for Africa. i guess it's better half-assed than not at all, right?

  2. Just after its launch in the market, viagra has created a niche for itself as the most effective medication for treating male erectile dysfunction across the world but alongside, the effectives of herbal Viagra products in dealing with male sexual problems cannot be ignored. Herbs and plants are, however, extensively used as sex stimulants worldwide and details present at inform you that the highly utilized sex boosters collectively known as herbal Viagra are namely, gingko biloba, yohimbe, horny goat weed and muira puama.

4 Reasons Why BET Is An Embarrassment To Black People

1. BET(Black Entertainment Television) did not air Coretta Scott King’s funeral on it’s station. BET claimed it wanted to offer viewers a different kind of experience by posting a live webcast on it’s website of the funeral where viewers could access it "at work, at home, traveling,[and] at school". Likewise, the four major networks; NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX all broadcast their own live webcasts on their respective websites. But these stations as well broadcast the funeral on television. C-SPAN and CNN also aired the funeral live.

This reason alone proves that BET is the epitome of trash on television. And not to equate the struggle of blacks with Coretta Scott King, but there would be no BET without her. BET felt that viewers would prefer to watch women shaking their rumps in music videos rather than some funeral for a beloved civil rights leader.
2. BET is not black entertainment television. It does not represent the views and ideals of the millions of Blacks in the United St…

The Light Skin Complex

Anybody who knows me well, or well enough for that matter, knows I was going to write about this at some point...smh...
Why do Dark Skinned Black people hating on Light Skinned Black people? Without Frederick Douglass, we would probably still be slaves. Without Jesse Jackson, helping out MLK jr,, White people would probably ignored him. Without Thurgood Marshall, Clarence Thomas wouldn't be Judge now. Now we got Obama as President... and you know eventually we will have a dark skinned African American President. Bush looked at Colin Powell, made him Secretary of State, then gave Condi Rice a chance. See... Dark Skinned Black people should be grateful that we Light Skinned Black people are making their life easier...Agree?” - Yahoo Answers Poster
