The Banalization of AIDS: "Just a Little Comprimidinho"

Sometimes I pretend I do not see things and, in fact, I even avoid seeing them. But my readers come to me, they ask me questions and I see things that I can not silence so I put them here because they forced me to put this video online now, instead of only in December, however, some facts have arrived and I do not I was silent.

The fact is that I read that one does not die more of AIDS (and this is a "half-truth because it depends almost to have"luck"And be diagnosed prematurely) and that all is well.

I will paste an image from another site that was what led me to put this text and this video here.

The fact is that I saw in SNNIPET google a message that aroused my curiosity and I went there to take a look and what I saw puzzled me:

To say such a thing, without scientific basis, from the armored platform where it hides, behind an avatar, implies a great responsibility and I, who am patient of the House of AIDS and I go there every six months, I always end up finding someone who is debilitated, or in the situation of a wheelchair, or a person who has lost his sight, for example, due to a cytomegalovirus retinitis that, if he has had "luck", will have lost the vision of "just an eye" ... On the other hand, I will never be able to erase from the retinas of my memory the youthful and happy face of that girl, so beautiful, who suffered from a bacterium that no one could trace her nature, resistant to everything what had been tried in her, bacterium that had lodged in its labyrinth, taking away the capacity of the balance ...

I was "new to it" and I asked foolishly,

"And that's why you use a wheelchair? I asked sadly.

I was down and when I asked that I lowered my head. She took my head, made me look into her eyes and said, smiling,

- "That's just on the street," and I blinked an eye - "At home I can walk against the walls" ...

Living happily, even with balance problems due to the rare opportunistic disease that comes from HIV infection
Happy woman, despite the inaccurate balance, so was the person of my memories


The favorable reality is set for those who are "lucky" to be diagnosed prematurely and therefore can live without becoming an AIDS case, unfortunately this is a low percentage of those diagnosed and it should be remembered that between the year 2000 and 2011 die, due to complications generated by AIDS, eleven thousand people.

I am an AIDS case because at the time I was on treatment, the booklet told me to recite the treatment prescription when the CD4 count reached 350 per ml, regardless of viral load, and today the primer reads, and this is very good, that the treatment starts immediately after the diagnosis, based on a long and extensive study called START (this link opens a window to almost everything I have on this study and you can understand Why my gesture of copying and pasting images from another site). The fact is that I consider the text in question as an exhortation to unprotected sex; I, as a person living with HIV and AIDS being undetectable ten years ago, would never risk a sexual relationship without a condom under any pretext because I have knowledge (information is everything) of an organic phenomenon called BLIPE VIRAL (tb opens another flap).

Ipsis literis Banalization of AIDS -

The name "Ledos" must be conjugated by "ledo engano"!

And, on the other hand, a person who "goes to the site, left with this pearl of definition of treatment against HIV:


Does the Author of this pearl have a brain composed of eight lentils interconnected by wires of spider webs? Would it be this.

I leave the video below for anyone who wants to see. It has more than 40 minutes and you have to be very interested in watching it.

Here I put another video

and below, an important document.

Good reading and get rid of this trivializing AIDS thing

The re-emergence of the AIDS epidemic in Brazil: challenges and prospects for its confrontation

Last December, when World AIDS Day was celebrated, the dissemination of epidemic trends in the 1 world and in Brazil2 by the United Nations and the Ministry of Health revealed contradictions and raised questions.

Against the backdrop of the world scenario, Brazilian data showed that AIDS is far from being controlled and has reached its worst indicators in more than thirty years of the disease. Since 2011 the barrier of forty thousand new annual cases has been surpassed, with no signs that it will reduce again in a short period of time.

AIDS has rebounded

The number of cases among homosexuals has once again grown, accompanied by the greater concentration of the epidemic in urban centers and the increase in the male / female ratio due, in particular, to the reduction of HIV transmission through the shared use of injecting drugs and the deceleration of transmission heterosexual.

A new generation, born after the mid-1990 decade, also began to have higher incidence rates than those who started their sex lives shortly after the onset of the epidemic.

An epidemiological profile that, to a certain extent, resumes similar characteristics to that observed in the early years of 1980, when the disease began to make its first victims and presented an incidence strongly concentrated in specific social segments.

Now, however, with incidence rates and mortality more alarming. But what is most evident in the re-emergence of the disease in the country is the trend of mortality. After years of steady reduction, the number of deaths and the death rate rose again.

Only in 2013 were 12.700 cases of deaths from the disease, a number similar to 15 years ago when the antiretroviral access policy had been implemented. Over the past seven years, the national mortality rate has increased by a little more than 5%, going from 5,9% per 100,000 inhabitants in 2006 to 6,2% per 100,000 inhabitants in 2013.

AIDS is Serious Thing

In the North, Northeast and South regions, rates were up to twice as high as in the period prior to the antiretroviral access policy, neutralizing all the advances observed previously in these places. The resurgence of AIDS in Brazil occurs at a time when the accumulated scientific knowledge in the field throw light prospects for the control of the epidemic in the world.

Studies on the effects of antiretrovirals used in daily health services3 show that people treated in the initial stages of the infection showed life expectancy close to uninfected individuals. This allows us to distinguish a scenario where death by AIDS should be an increasingly rare event.

The greatest enthusiasm, however, came from studies reporting a reduction of more than 90% of HIV transmission in antiretroviral-treated HIV-positive people with complete suppression of viral replication.


A higher rate of protection than observed in condom distribution programs. Based on this new scenario, 6 mathematical modeling studies have indicated that the universal diagnosis and treatment of infected persons would have the potential to eliminate the occurrence of new infections.

This has prompted the United Nations to urge countries to deploy up to 2020 ambitious programs to diagnose 90% of people with HIV, treat 90% with antiretrovirals and make 90% of those treated have undetectable viral load.

It is the so-called target 90-90-90 that, according to the United Nations, could lead to the end of the epidemic in the world until 2030.

The 90-90-90 Triad Yem the desire to End the epidemic in 2030.

Beyond the controversy about the feasibility of drug control strategies based on drug treatment, it is sufficient to observe the permanence of tuberculosis and leprosy as important public health problems, despite the existence of effective treatments for cure and to avoid transmission of infections - the United Nations proposition has brought to the heart of the debate the capacity of health systems to absorb a large contingent of infected people and the quality of care provided to them.

And talking to Healing by 2020! God bless them for being honest.

In Brazil, data from the 2 Ministry of Health on the "continuum of treatment" - estimating the number of people infected in the country and the percentage of those who know about the diagnosis and are undergoing effective treatment - pointed to a surprising picture:

The number of infected people who are aware of their diagnosis and are out of health services or with detectable viral load (296000) is about double the number of people (145000) who are unaware of their diagnosis.

A clear policy difficulty in ensuring clinical follow-up and adherence to treatment in a sustainable manner over time. Since the beginning of the epidemic, even in the years of 1980, a network of care for infected persons was implemented in the country, based on the principles of integrality and interdisciplinarity and with quality assessments showing relatively satisfactory structures and work processes for significant portions of the units of health.

In recent years, however, part of this network has been penalized, due to the underfunding of the Unified Health System (SUS) and the weakening of the AIDS response in the country.

The recent proposal of the Ministry of Health to strengthen this network by expanding the care of infected persons in basic care leaves questions about its effectiveness. It is true that positive experiences were observed in services deployed at this level of care, however, evaluations also showed that the worst quality indicators focused on services of less complexity.

For those who say that I am "fuck tyers" with my pessimism I must retort by saying.

Fuck, but do not fuck!
