ezs note:  This is, by far, the most fascinating story about Vietnam has reported.  Y'see, it's not entirely Vietnam's fault.  A certain agency, PEPFAR, has, until recently, provided a large sum of the funds necessary to combat HIV/AIDS.  PEPFAR stands for U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.  And guess who's in charge of that after January 20?

I don't even want to say it...

Please, call your Representative and both Senators and ask that PEPFAR be fully funded.

ezs note:  I am cautiously optimistic regarding the use of Truvada.  It certainly wouldn't hurt.  Be aware, though, that there is a virus in Cuba which is more stubborn than the old HIV/AIDS virus.  Be safer and ask your doctor.
