Named Reporting - Good or Bad?
What are your thoughts on named reporting? Here is the issue and what is at stake.

The Origin of AIDS

KIJOUN writes - "Is it really important to know where HIV came from and if it eventually causes aids? I have a little girl we adopted that is HIV+. Her mother took AZT before she delivered and she took it when she was first born; everything the way it's suppose to be done. However she was a twin and the first born so she developed the virus. She has never been sick other then a cold and has always had a high t-cell count but also a very high viral load. This has come down (she's now 10 yrs old) I do believe because of the cocktails she takes."

The Problem of Poor Medication Adherence

Forum viewer CAIRNCREST writes - "I agree that taking meds is such a pain. Not only do I get a reminder of my mortality each time that I take my prescribed regimen, but I also get the joys of dealing with the awful side effects such a peripheral neuropathy and lypodystrophy - not to mention the fatigue, headaches, poor balance and chronic diarrhea. I have been tempted to say the "heck" with the meds and let nature take its course. However, I do not wish to play roulette with my life."
