home exam AIDS in Kenya causes concern The New York Times
Kenya plans to conduct screening tests HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, in 4 million people in their own homes in 2010.
I am reviving an article in a Sergipe newspaper six years ago because, in fact, nothing has changed and I find it curious, to say the least, that the NYT is concerned about what will happen in Kenya; especially since the aforementioned periodical does not invest a single dollar in the treatment or prevention of the HIV epidemic in Africa, which is a desperately alarming case! It also causes me “kind” that “Human Rights Watch” sends letters to the Kenyan Government, as will be seen below. I would consider it relevant if HRW sent money orders, preferably with thousands of dollars to be deducted from their bank accounts.
I say this because they have the unlucky habit of intervening militarily, thus using the argument of force, at the expense of the strength of the argument, to determine that something happens like this, so, if that is in their interest, or roast, roast, if this is their wish I would like to highlight this paragraph of an article in a Sergipe newspaper:
But recently, the Human Rights Watch group sent the Kenyan government a letter asking the government to ensure that everyone who takes the tests - particularly children and adolescents - has their rights protected during the process.
About 150 children are believed to be infected by the HIV in Kenya, a widespread epidemic.
Examination and counseling at home are considered crucial, as it is often not possible to convince people to go to a clinic to take the test for fear of being seen there.
However, conducting tests on children in their homes can create serious family problems. The group asked health workers to obtain the consent of older children instead of depending on the request of parents or other relatives, especially if the child is pregnant or is already a parent, in addition to staying close to the child when the result is given away.
As will be seen below, more important than sending letters is to send help, as children in Kenya, when they are born with HIV, are already born with the days numbered and numbered in a few days…
Letters, in short, are pieces of paper and, if I receive a letter, here in my house, it is still up to me to open it or not and, if open, I may be impervious to its contents and the Government
Attacks on children
"Children have already been evicted from their homes, exploited or physically abused by their relatives when they learned of their condition," said Human Rights Watch.
A report on the epidemic of AIDS in Kenya, launched by the organization last year, offered a scary picture. Orphans are often mistreated or underfed by bitter relatives who take care of them.
Some parents refuse to give antiretroviral drugs to children, even when they are at home, as the medicine can cause nausea, pain or hunger, and food is scarce and expensive.
It is my personal opinion, and I believe that they act in this BLOG, which would be more efficient, take food or promote adoptions.
There are any number of people, of all sexual orientations (and I say this because it matters) who would love to have the opportunity to adopt these children and, with that, give her a better chance of survival, with more dignity or, in the minimum, to assure them more comfort, if the inevitable is inevitable.
I am doing the rescue here and a news story from six years ago because, as Leo Jaime would say, nothing has changed and the laboratories continue to deny the charitable and humanitarian protocols with which the best existing treatment is brought to these places and not “ best available ”…
