Salam Maulidur Rasul to all Muslims out there! Yes it’s a Public Holiday but advocacy works are never on pause.

So today for #InformativeTuesday we will be looking at #HIV #Treatment ! How exciting is that?

This is a thread.
Current HIV therapy available in selected government health clinics and hospitals in Malaysia is highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART).
HAART therapy consists of at least three antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to suppress the HIV virus and to stop the disease progression.

1. @SAHPRA1 has decided to not approve the #Sputnik #COVID19 jab's application for emergency use at this time.
2. Why not? Sahpra is concerned the jab may increase the risk of males (vaccinated with Sputnik) getting infected with #HIV.
2. Why is there a concern that the #Sputnik jab may increase the risk of HIV infection?

1 of the 2 Sputink doses uses an Ad5-vector, which has been linked to an increased risk to contract HIV in studies in populations where HIV infection rates = high. SA = high HIV prevalence.
3. What has @SAHPRA1 done to obtain data that proves #Sputnik does not lead to an increased risk of HIV infection?

1. It has asked Sputnik's applicants to submit data demonstrating the safety of Sputnik in settings of high HIV prevalence.
2. Adequate data = not been submitted.

We have a drug that protects from #HIV. True or False? #ph260720
My friend Steve texted me last year asking how he could convince his partner Ed to see a doctor.

Steve said, “Something weird is happening to him. He can’t walk, his speech is slurred, and his mood changes. He’s a totally different person.” #ph260720 #HIV
I asked him why Ed is reluctant to see doctors. Steve replied, “He has always hated seeing doctors because he feels judged by the health system.”

This is the story of Ed’s experience and how we could have prevented his death from #AIDS 8 weeks later. #ph260720 #providerbias

We’re now 40 years into the #HIV response, with a great infographic from @UNAIDS highlighting key accomplishments, but there is still much work to be done! #ph260720 Image
Despite incredible progress expanding #access to HIV treatment to over 27 million people worldwide, we are still leaving some groups behind #ph260720. Which groups do you think are being left behind?
HIV treatment #access for children has always lagged behind that of adults, with only 54% of children living with HIV on life-saving treatment compared to 74% of adults #ph260720

Uma pessoa tratando HIV com carga viral indetectável não transmite HIV por nenhuma prática sexual: seja oral, anal ou vaginal.

Mesmo se sangrar. Mesmo se ejacular. Mesmo se houver outra IST junto.

Profissional que não reconhece isso é negacionista também. E antiético.
‘Há um amplo desconhecimento e descrença em relação à conclusão baseada em evidências de que as pessoas que têm uma carga viral de HIV sustentada indetectável não podem transmitir o HIV sexualmente - isto é, indetectável = intransmissível(I= I).
O medo antigo e equivocado sobre a transmissão do HIV persiste; conseqüentemente, o mesmo acontece com o policiamento da expressão sexual e a penalização do prazer enfrentado pelas pessoas com HIV.

Korang tahu tak cara-cara perlindungan diri korang daripada #HIV kalau korang adalah someone yang aktif secara seksual? Nak tahu? Baca thread ini yaaaa!

Yang paling lazim adalah kondom dan pelincir berasaskan air (water based) secara betul dan konsisten setiap kali melakukan seks dubur (anal sex) atau seks faraj (vaginal sex).
US Centers for Disease Control menganggarkan keberkesanan sebanyak 80% untuk kondom sebagai perlindungan dari HIV.

Ait? 80% je? Kata hebat sangat kondom ni…

Mesmo que o sexo dure 3 min ele pode sim trazer consequências para toda uma vida.

Entender que genitais pertencem a corpos e corpos pertencem a indivíduos, transforma a maneira como enxergamos a sexualidade.

Não que tudo precise ser tão sério.

Mas pessoas não são descartáveis.
Teoricamente, não existe sexo seguro, no que concerne às ISTs (infecções sexualmente transmissíveis), pois sempre há um risco inerente de algo acontecer. Na medicina, optamos por falar então de sexo protegido.
Mas será que sexo é apenas isto? Cercar-se de todas as formas para evitar ISTs, gestações não planejadas e aproveitar alguns minutos de prazer?

Eu, particularmente, acredito no sexo consciente e sem culpa, no sexo transparente e corresponsável. Que dê o

As a gay man, the parallels between the early years of the AIDS epidemic and our current #COVID pandemic r many. Then, as now, there are hostile govs making the situation worse. Reagan never uttered the word AIDS until pressured by the death of his friend, Rock Hudson.
His administration was populated w/homophobes who were indifferent to gay men dying from a disease transmitted primarily thru sex. There was widespread public fear/hostility, too. Many hospitals isolated AIDS patients, even demeaning them as they died.
Most of all, there was so much public stigma directed at people w/HIV-AIDS. So much fear. So much ignorance. Gay men, the primary early victims, were left to suffer alone. Even now, those at risk from #COVID r mocked.…

@GlobalFund 2021 #ResultsReport: A reader’s guide

#COVID19 is the headline, but there is a lot more to talk about, especially with the #7thReplenishment coming up.…
a 🧵...
#TB is front and center, because it was worst hit by #COVID19. Resources in pulmonary health diverted from TB towards Covid19 – doctors, beds, GeneXpert machines and cartridges – on top of everything else.
#HIV was impacted too, especially #prevention and #testing. #Malaria fared better, probably in part because countries with endemic malaria were hit by #COVID19 latter, though testing did drop.

Celia was the editor and frequent writer of the column and unearthed hard evidence of the cold-bloodedness of the AIDS ESTABLISHMENT PUSHING A DRUG that was WORSE THAN THE DISEASE, and killed faster than the natural progression of AIDS left untreated. >

Here's the #Ivermectin saga, people.
1.) In the 1960s Japan's Satoshi Omura did chemistry work, trying to find a medicine to kill helminth worms in livestock.
2.) In the '70s he joined forces with Max Tischler at Wesleyan in USA.
3.) They brought...
...@Merck & @Kitasato pharma companies on board.
4.) Omura discovered a bacterium that emitted a powerful anti-helminth chemical.
5.) William Campbell @Merck tested it. Using synthetic chemistry, they made "ivermectin" -- 25Xs stronger than the bacterial chemical.

5.) The @Merck & Kitasato companies were thrilled to discover it cured a long list of livestock worm & parasitic diseases & a huge veterinary market opened.
6.) In 1981 Bangladeshi Mohamad Aziz showed that #Ivermectin could cure River Blindness, a terrible disease...

Fuck Fauci Friday

It's Friday September 3, 2021

Millions around the world are dead from a pathogen released from a CCP bioweapons lab doing Gain of Function research, with U.S. funds and data
directed by Dr. Anthony Fauci of the NIH.
The spike protein of that pathogen is also what is produced in millions 💉'd with a gene therapy,
fast-tracked by Fauci and his wife.
Fauci hold patents on the HIV gene sequences in the spike.> #Spike #WarpedSpeed #GoF #FuckFauciFriday #FuckUAndTheWhoresYouRodeInOn #FauciIsAFreak

Yesterday in clinic I saw many patients.

All of them living with #HIV.
All Black.
None of them vaccinated for #COVID19.

We engaged in conversations about their reasons for not getting vaccinated.
Some wanted more time to assess the after effects of the vaccine.

Some felt there was no reason to be vaccinated if they could still catch the virus.

Some saw the after effects of the vaccine impact their loved ones more than the virus itself.
I listened to each and every one of their reasons.

While I encouraged them to get the vaccine, I didn't use scare tactics to do so.

I also didn't try to guilt or judge them into compliance.

One thing was clear, however.

None of them were "anti-vaxxers."

Word is out that @bostonpolice is about to reprise Operation Clean Sweep, the brutal purging of the homeless and people who use drugs in the Mass Ave./Melnea Cass corridor this coming Tuesday. This is a public health disaster in the making. 1/@MayorKimJaney
You do not create another public crisis in the midst of a pandemic. @bostonpolice are about to make #COVID19, #HIV, #HCV and #overdose worse in Boston. 2/
There is no plan but to disperse and purge the area. This is is public health and medical malpractice by law enforcement in #Boston. It’s going to make things worse. 3/
