    Yeah, as always prevention is better than cure. When transmission of the HIV virus is prevented, then we don’t have anything to cure. And this deadly disease will be gone forever. No one will have to suffer.

    I am very impressed with Hans Rosling’s speech on HIV and how it can destroy lives and what steps should we take to avoid it.
