Sydneyrugbyjock73 saidMost of them are correct and innocuous in nature. The true nature and motivation in this study is in the 1st myth. HIV researchers, educators and pharmaceuticals companies have a vested interest in spreading the myth buster about being less likely statistically to catch the virus if positive and taking anti-viral medication. Wow now all who believe that one go out and by some shares in pharmaceuticals companies. Your going to boost your stock price just be being you
How did I miss this Sydney jewel?
Here's yet another study:
“Furthermore, among the total surveyed HIV-positive population (including both people on ART and those not), a very high proportion (61.8 percent) had ‘undetectable’ levels of HIV in their blood (below 1,000 copies). This is more than twice as high as the level of viral suppression among the HIV-positive population in the United States, which was 25 percent in 2012
Two-thirds of people living with HIV in our study have what is considered ‘undetectable’ HIV and are practically not at risk of transmitting the virus—it’s phenomenal to see it’s feasible to reach these levels in such resource-limited settings,”said Dr. David Maman, lead researcher of the Malawi study. “While this is not a clinical trial, the level of new infections we see is so low that our study strongly suggests HIV treatment itself has played a role in reducing transmission.
“Studies like ours are essential to get a close-up picture of the epidemic,”said Dr. Helena Huerga, the lead researcher of the South Africa study. “Our study tells us the situation on the ground is better than we expected, but it also points to exactly where we need to target our interventions to maximize the impact. As we can see, the older the treatment program, the better the impact seems to be in reducing transmission, so this is a real signal to the global health community to keep pushing forward with HIV treatment on a large scale and get treatment to as many people as possible, as soon as possible.””http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/news-stories/press-release/two-new-msf-studies-show-how-hiv-treatment-reduced-transmission-malawi
Do you intend to malign Doctor's Without Borders too?
