Swaziland’s healthcare is under added threat due to an economic crisis in the country. Swazi adults have the highest rate of HIV infections in the world. One in every four adults are infected. But now Swaziland cannot afford to meet the cost of its medical expenses. HIV-infected patients have consequently been limited to just a month’s supply of HIV medication, Antiretrovirals, instead of the three-month treatment that they previously received. Other health and medical treatments have also been interrupted. Al Jazeera’s Tania Page reports from Swaziland.
The Vatican’s long track record of baby trafficking and organized crime schemes are being made known worldwide. New York is no exception. The Catholic Church specializes in finding the vulnerable to prey on, and make astronomical profits. The Protect Your Children Foundation invites you to listen carefully to the BBC documentary which details how the Church implemented these crimes and how the State (through Children Services) facilitated it. Over 23000 innocent children in New York alone were affected by these human experiments. Jacklyn Hoerger’s job was to treat children with HIV at a New York Catholic children’s home. But no one had told her that the drugs she was administering were experimental and highly toxic. “We were told that if they were vomiting, if they lost their ability to walk, if they were having diarrhoea, if they were dying, then all of this was because of their HIV infection.” Jacklyn Hoerger worked at the Catholic owned Incarnation Children’s Center. The Vatican. In fact it was the drugs that were making the children ill and the children had been enrolled on the secret trials without their relatives’ or guardians’ knowledge. As Jacklyn would later discover, those who tried to take the children off the drugs risked losing them into care. They quickly learned this was an organized crime. GUINEA PIG KIDS Tuesday, 30 November, 2004 1930 GMT on BBC Two (UK) Spokesperson Vera Sherav said: “They tested these highly experimental drugs. Why didn’t they provide …
Living with HIV Twenty-five years ago, a diagnosis of HIV meant that death was just around the corner. Today, an individual receiving that same diagnosis can expect to live a lengthy life — maybe not the life he or she had envisioned, but life just the same. Thanks to advances in modern medicine and medical care, HIV/AIDS has become a chronic, yet manageable disease. However, it is still an impoverishing one that can literally turn peoples lives upside down. Individuals are faced with the high cost of medicine and doctors visits, not to mention the horrible side effects that often accompany the medication. And one more thing. There is no cure. For the past 15 years, HIV Alliance has been supporting people living with HIV/AIDS and preventing new infections. We focus our attention on many areas, including prevention, education and client services. For all of our programs, there is a core value of non-judgment. We are not really concerned with how people contracted HIV. Rather, we are more concerned with helping people get the treatment and services they need to lead better lives. It is our continued belief that someday we will live in a community that is free of HIV and AIDS. HIV Alliance is here to help! www.hivalliance.org

Give Us the Facts at a Younger Age: An HIV Prevention Public Service Announcement from the CT HIV Planning Youth Advisory Group. The Connecticut HIV Planning Youth Advisory Group, in partnership with Youth Rights Media, is proud to present this public service announcement for parents, teachers and all adults working with young people. The Connecticut HIV Planning Youth Advisory Group is composed of 20 young people from across the state committed to preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and improving care for youth living with HIV/AIDS. Youth Rights Media engages young people in video media production and community organizing, equipping them with tools, skills, and strategies to effect change within themselves and their communities. The PSA highlights the important of giving youth the facts. Some adults are reluctant to talk about topics such as sex; less than one-quarter of Connecticut high school students have had a conversation with their parent or guardian about sex and how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases. By 12th grade, 68% of Connecticut students have had sexual intercourse. Among these sexually active students, 37% did NOT use a condom the last time they had sex. And 69% of all Chlamydia cases in Connecticut are among young people age 15-24. As our youth say: if we don’t get the information now, when will we get the facts?
