I don't know where to start

Most ‘AIDS orphanages’ around the world aren’t filled with children double orphaned by HIV. Most children in orphanages worldwide are not orphans. It is time we got beyond orphanages and supported families in the community. It is a matter of national sovereignty. I won’t ask the usual questions. I don’t know where to start. Jamie […]

The artist formerly known as Prince

Interesting blog post from Lord McConnell. Is his name or his title Lord? Like the artist formerly known as Prince? But he is right that “The UK must continue to fund and support those programmes that stop transmission of the virus.” In the penultimate paragraph it appears that he is suggesting we keep our feet […]

Sexuality information

I am a big fan of Htar Htar and the Akhaya movement. But let’s think out of the box, past the traditional boundaries of ‘sex education’ and move into the realm of sexuality information and sexuality knowledge. If families don’t talk about sex, schools don’t talk about sex, and women don’t talk about sex with […]

Support. Don't Punish

Deadly new article

One imagines a sophisticated virus to dress well and drink the latest cocktails. This article looks like it was written twenty years ago. There are three problems with it.
