Many people , including those living with HIV, do not know that TB is curable. This is a basic message and one thing that is failing to get through. We should know how to get the message to policy-... More > makers and funders that more drugs are needed for both diseases. It is not “either/or’, there is no point providing ARVs only for patients to die of TB for lack of TB resources. Similarly , TB efforts alone are insufficient. HIV/AIDS is dramatically fuelling the TB epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa, where up to 70% of TB patients are co-infected with HIV in some countries. For many years efforts to tackle TB and HIV have been largely separate, despite the overlapping epidemiology. Improved collaboration between TB and HIV/AIDS programmes will lead to more effective control of TB among HIV- infected people and to significant public health gains.< Less
Manipulating Science for the Promotion of Viagra - Evidence from By Dominika A. Boczula
Paperback: $14.95

(1 Ratings)
Medical treatment is by definition an invested business - its basic design presumes financial investment and gains coupled with patients seen as nothing more than customers. This book's core argument... More > is that the unprecedented success of Viagra worldwide is not the result of an exciting, compassionate scientific breakthrough bringing relief to the desperate or dying. Rather, commercial interests have created a socially desirable but medically limited product -ironically, by denying the fundamentally social nature of sex. By reducing sex to penile performance, then equating penile performance with masculine identity, a man's self-worth and social worth are reduced to the hardness and sustainability of his erections. The book's approach is the clear illustration of the medicalization of discontent facilitated by the passage of legislation permitting direct-to-consumer drug advertising, online drug sales, and the entanglement of health professionals and drug marketers.< Less
