Change PLWHIV back to PLWHA

AIDS Awareness has gone off the rails in Papua New Guinea at the hands of amateurs trying to show that antiretrovirals (ARV) have rendered HIV harmless and allow sufferers to go back to normal.

ANGAU care centre in Lae has shelves with rows upon rows of files of sufferers who are dead including those on ARV.

There has been a name change. PLWHA used to mean People Living with HIV/AIDS. Now the amateurs have called it PLWHIV to remove all mention of AIDS. This is foolishness.

There are still hundreds of people in Papua New Guinea with millions across the world with no access to ARV and go on to full blown AIDS with dementia and loss of weight.

People in war torn nations undoubtedly have no access to ARV or TB medication. They just die.

People on ARV need to follow Positive Living with limits on fatty foods that might bring lipodystrophy. Please click:

Lipodystrophy can include buildup or loss of body fat.

This is loss of fat on limbs, legs, face, stomach and buttocks with new layers of fat around the stomach.

New fat can build up in the lymph vessels, vena cava, heart and liver with inevitable onset of diabetes two and heart problems.

Helicopter companies will not be happy if the HIV status of Kokoda trekkers is hidden from them and puts them into the position of making several evacuation flights. 

They will want to raise the evacuation insurance premium or refuse to accept.
