The Gambia and South Africa: scandals, lackeys and a cure for AIDS


Gambia and South Africa have been engaged in a kind of World Cup of Health Leadership Madness over the last few years, particularly in regard to HIV/AIDS. Think of the similarities: Thabo Mbeki, South Africa's president, has long been swayed by rogue scientists who deny that HIV causes AIDS, and has made it plain that he believes antiretroviral drugs are simply toxic, their consumption benefiting pharmaceutical companies rather than patients. Yahya Jammeh, president of the Gambia, is equally skeptical about Western medical approaches to the virus, but his style is more pragmatic. He does not enter into etiological niceties or dark conspiracy theories, he simply rolls up his (rather elaborate) sleeves and provides a cure for AIDS (and asthma, hypertension, infertility) with special homebrewed remedies. More similarities: both leaders have Ministers of Health who are basically lackeys, abusing their positions of medical authority by legitimizing the wonky views of their superiors. South Africa has its Manto Tshabalala-Msimang, infamous for touting the benefits of beetroot and garlic for AIDS patients while harping endlessly on the negative side-effects of antiretroviral drugs. Gambia has its Tamsir Mbowe, who is willing to drop whatever scientific scruples he ever had and endorse his president's magical curative powers. Or he was, until yesterday: Dr. Mbowe has been fired. Rumor has it that he was heard muttering that President Jammeh can't really cure AIDS after all. Or maybe it is the scandal Dr. Mbowe is embroiled in about his involvement in the sale of rice, deemed unfit for human consumption, to the poverty striken Gambian people.

If the one rumor is true, this would seem a step in the right direction: there is still space for speaking (under one's breath) truth to power at the highest-level Gambian health circles. South Africa should take note. On the other hand, there seem to be no shortage of lackeys around in Gambia. In an editorial in the Daily Observer that painfully mixes pandering with junk science, Dr. Abs Taal and Ousman Darboe gush mindlessly about the 19 patients 'cured of AIDS' by their godlike head of state. Some quotations are amusing:

President Jammeh did not say that he cures AIDs, all what he said was that he treats AIDS and gets rid of the virus from the patients' bodies.

He said all medicines have side-effects, but his traditional medicines have no side-effects, noting that all its side-effects are positive.

But others are downright terrifying:

The proof of the effectiveness of President Jammeh's treatment is that although it was claimed by some critics that the patients who were under ARV [anti-retroviral treatment] will die if they stop taking such medications, these have proven critics wrong when President Jammeh asked those patients on ARV to stop taking them.

In regard to HIV/AIDS policy, South Africa clearly has a wayward President and Minister of Health. But they stop short of advising patients to go off AIDS treatment, and at least South Africa still has a flourishing journalistic tradition of dissent and criticism. The health of Gambia seems to be seriously compromised in more than just the area of HIV/AIDS.

Well this is a nice Blog on most important facts. I am happy to read this. But I am looking more and more info about how to treat aids. What are the new methods of treating aids.Which is more benificialHerbal/Allop. Please add some thing more. I shall link from my blogs to this blog to day itself.

Last week I have found a nice informative guide on HIV from following URL http://www.helpcure.com/hiv/

This guide says - How To Cure HIV Through herbal medicines and Holistic Treatment. Guide claims that HIV viruses can't be killed but they can be ousted out of the body cells using bio magnetic repulsion or something written. I dreamt of a HIV free world after reading this guide.

Hope to read more from you people soon.

Wish you all a nice and fantastic Day for you

Hello everyone out there,Do you know that there is a great Herbal doctor who can cure any deadly disease? Like Cancer, Hiv, syphilis, diabetes, herpes madness, low spam count And also bring back your Lover e.t.c. Well my main reason why i am writing this right now is to inform the whole world about the great deeds, Dr.Ebosa did for me. I was diagnosed of this deadly disease in the year 2007 ever since then i was taking my medications, until i met the great herbal doctor, though i never believed in herbal med. I saw many testimonies on how a great herbal doctor cured their deadly diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he asked me to send him my email, which i did. He gave me a form to fill, I filled it and send it back to him. He told me that he required some items in which he will use in preparing the herbal medicine for me. I don't know where to find the items he required. He told me that the only alternative is for me to send him the money, then he can help me to purchase the items from the items sellers. I promised myself to do anything to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items and he prepared the herbal medicine and send to me through courier service delivery and i make use of it as he instructed. few weeks later he asked me to go for check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HIV Negative. If you are passing through hardship and you need a way out, kindly contact him via his email on ebosaherbalremedy@hotmail.com or http://ebosaherbalremedy.blogspot.com/

I WAS JUST TRYING IT OUT OF FRUSTRATION? AND AFTER 14 DAYS, HE TOLD ME TO GO FOR A MEDICAL TEST.
AND YOU WON'T BELIEVE THAT 5 DIFFERENT DOCTORS CONFIRMED IT THAT AM NEGATIVE..IT WAS LIKE A DREAM,,I NEVER BELIEVE HIV HAS CURE..AM NOW NEGATIVE,,
AM A LIVING WITNESS..I DON'T KNOW HOW TO THANK THIS MAN? I JUST WANT TO HELP OTHERS IN ANY WAY I CAN..
I HAVE JOINED MANY FORUMS AND HAVE POSTED THIS TESTIMONIES AND ALOT OF PEOPLE HAS MAIL AND CALLED THIS MAN ON PHONE AND AFTER 14 DAYS THEY ALL CONFIRMED NEGATIVE..
BBC NEWS TOOK IT LIVE AND EVERY EVERYBODY SAW IT AND ITS NOW OUT IN PAPERS AND MAGAZINES THAT THERE IS A HERBAL CURE FOR HIV AND ALL WITH THE HELP OF THIS MAN,,

I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ogudugu who helped me in my life, i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by Dr Ogudugu,i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how Dr Ogudugu cured them. When i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that their is no cure for herpes that is Not true just contact him and get cure from Dr Ogudugu healing spell cure of all kinds of sickness you may have. Remember delay in treatment leads to death email him GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM

My name is Lucy Mengel.This is a very joyful day of my life because of what Dr.Edebor did for me, helping me back with my ex-husband and his magic love spell. We have been married for 6 years and was so terrible because my husband was cheating on me and really was looking for a divorce, but when I came across e-mail on the Internet Dr.Edebor how he helped so many people to get their ex back and help secure relationships and make people be happy in their relationship. I explained my situation to him and then to seek his help, but to my surprise he told me that he will help me with my case and here I am now celebrate because my husband has completely changed forever. He always wants to be with me and he can do nothing without my presence. I really enjoy my marriage, what a great celebration. I will continue on the internet, testifying because Dr.Edebor is really a true spell caster.
