""Thanks for reasoned response, Don. Can't see that the fact that a particular disease, previously incurable, is now curable, means that it is now therefore OK to contract it, or supplies any disproof of statistics regarding its distribution, or its prevalence in any particular demographic, which is all I can make of your supposed rejoinder.""

Not my point Mike!

What I was getting at is that the management of the HIV virus is at a stage where it is being prevented from developing into full blown AIDS, thereby removing, I would have thought, the claim that those newly infected with HIV are sick in the normally accepted sense of the word.

I does, in my opinion, alleviate the pressing need to "do something", however draconian, instead of continuing to look for the vaccine which will remove the virus once and for all.

Meanwhile, education is likely to be far more productive than coercion, which will simply result in some hiding their infection, while others take legal action in the Court of Human Rights.

Ake must surely know this, but
