Earthwatch - December 2005

by Lucile Scott

Around the world in AIDS-y days

NORTH AMERICA
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has agreed to work with the World Health Organization to share American research on generic-AIDS-drug effectiveness—and speed developing countries’ access to meds.

EUROPE
In October, London developers announced plans to erect a “sexual theme park” with interactive thrills promoting bedroom—and HIV—expertise.

THE CARIBBEAN
A Cuba AIDS prevention group handed out condoms and lube while cohosting the country’s first gay film festival, a Havana box-office smash, this past September.

AFRICA
To deter rapists and reduce HIV risk, South African supermarkets now sell Rapex, a latex vaginal insert that hooks onto the penis and requires surgical removal.

ASIA
AIDS education made for a heated Indian summer, where campaigns included the Red Ribbon Express train’s touring educational skits and a honk-your-horn-for-AIDS-awareness day.

MIDDLE EAST
The United Nations launched an HIV-info assault in Saudi Arabia, after a Canadian Globe & Mail article revealed this August that the country’s foreign HIVers—half its HIV population—are incarcerated, then deported or left to die.
