Scotland could become first country to beat HIV

 From Glasgow Caledonian University:

‘Research which could help Scotland become the first country to beat HIV is being highlighted in a new campaign to promote the public impact of health research at universities across the UK. Professor Claudia Estcourt is leading work on HIV prevention with the new anti-HIV drug, PrEP, which has been proven to radically reduce the chance of infection in high risk groups. People across Scotland at high risk of acquiring HIV are now able to access the Pre Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) drug, which is a pill taken before sex to prevent HIV transmission. Her follow-up research is now seeking to make sure everyone across Scotland who could benefit has access to the drug.’

    So, here is research which could have a massive effect on the quality of life of many millions of people across the world and we have no report on this in the Scottish media. They want pigeon poo, a few women who assert PoliceScotland did not take their revenge-porn victimisation seriously, or cancelled trains in Fife.

    Scotrail introduced a new timetable this week, which was increasing the number of trains and seats to alleviate overcrowding and improving journey times. Unlike with Southern Rail and Northern Trains in England this timetable change appears to have been siccessful ….. because BBC Scotland has not shown us pictures of overcrowded platforms. Their report on Monday, when the timetable was being introduced set it in the context of the chaos of the changed timetable IN ENGLAND LAST YEAR.

    Thank you for this. I am also an advocate for HIV awareness in my country Philippines. Meanwhile, I wrote my experience on joining the fundraiser for PLHIV: kloydecaday.wordpress.com/2019/07/14/running-for-hiv-aids/. I hope you also read this and discuss things to me so we can help each other be educated about this illness. More powers!
