Africans migrate en mass to South African in search of jobs
next to the hostels where the men live are brothels where AIDS is spread through the population
when Mandela is released from Jail, 1% of the South African population had been infected with AIDS but the government did very little to combat the growing epidemic over the following four years
in 1984, Mandela saw his job being mostly that of reconciliation and led his vice president to takethe helm of the AIDS fight
during the five years that president Mandela was in office, he rarely discussed AIDS as infectionswhere doubling on a yearly basis within his country
Bill Clinton ran for president in 1992 promising to take the lead in the AIDS fight, in stark contrastto Reagan
HIV was thought to be dormant for several years before infection but scientists found out that itreplicated by the billions on a daily basis starting on the first day of infection, it just took a longtime before these actions progressed to compromise the immune system
 
replication of HIV isn’t a perfect process, as such, drug resistance is a given
 
in 1996, the triple cocktail developed by the team working under Dr. David Ho shows incrediblepromise against the AIDS virus, the cost was 16 thousand dollars a year 
by 1996, 20 million Africans where infected with HIV with no way of affording the cost of treatment, which lead to an enormous moral question being asked
AIDS patients in the United States with health care could afford the drugs but not those without it
while in Brazil the triple cocktail is freely available to anybody who needs it, yet it’s banned in
South Africa
Brazil had 500 thousand infected AIDS patients in the 1990s, the government built the AIDSclinics in poor neig
hborhoods but it wasn’t until a patient brought the government to court did they
provide the triple cocktail to their population
AZT can prevent transmission between mother and child
President Mbeki continues to see that AIDS is an environmental and social disease, infectionrates are now to 20% within the population which was completely preventable
infection rates within the black communities skyrocketed while they stabilized in the rest of the American population
40% of new AIDS infections come from IV drug users within the United States
AIDS becomes a global pandemic which is met with absolute ignorance many governmentsaround the world who deny its existence
20 million people died by the end of the 1990s by HIV/AIDS infections while most of theinternational community still looked the other way
 
in the late 1990s, President Mbeki repeats his denials about AIDS, saying it’s caused by poverty,
not a virus during the first AIDS conference in Africa
the pharmaceutical industry stand behind their intellectual property rights behind the AIDS drugsthey had developed at the cost of poor peoples lives
