Mammoth British drugs company GlaxoSmithKline just formed a new venture as part of a 50/50 partnership with University of North Carolina. The enormous project for which GSK will provide a team of top scientists and $20 million over five years aims not to just prevent or treat HIV, but to finally cure it! The UNC will provide over 40 researchers to work with GSK’s team of scientists. The new company is called Qura Therapeutics LLC, it will manage intellectual property and other business matters related to the partnership.

Health : HIV Guide – Elton John AIDS Foundation

Catégorie: Health

Elton-John-AIDS-Foundation

 

Earlier this week, just hours after Grammy Award-winning music legend Elton John urged Congress to bolster its fight against AIDS, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, in collaboration with AIDS United, released a guide on HIV prevention and care, as well as a unique online Q&A feature. The new resource is supported in part by a grant from the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The guide, “A Handbook To Understanding Health and HIV,” lays out facts and debunks myths about HIV and AIDS at a time when 1.2 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV, and there are still 50,000 new diagnoses annually. It is being released at a time when, as Elton John noted in his testimony today before a Senate appropriations subcommittee, sustained efforts are needed to prevent the disease from once again becoming a “ruthless pandemic.”

Health : A Magazine Printed With HIV/AIDS Blood

Catégorie: Health : News : Watch this !

We are publishing this Swiss press release “as is.” It describes an interesting attempt to destigmatize HIV, we feel, but not without controversy. Some may have issues with the way the magazine has chosen to address HIV stigma. Would you donate your blood for a commercial venture like this? Is it necessary, as the publisher does here, to warn readers that the magazine is not dangerous? (It arrives in a clear plastic wrapper that reads, “Break the seal and help break the stigma.”) Does focussing on the stigma associated with HIV reduce it or actually perpetuate that same stigma? Or is this all a cheap publicity stunt designed to sell copies?

These are some of the questions I invite you to ponder – and comment on if you feel so inclined.

 

In a new campaign from Saatchi & Saatchi Switzerland for Vangardist, a leading German men’s monthly, the magazine invites its readers to take a hands-on approach to end the social stigma surrounding HIV

To coincide with one of the biggest HIV events in the world – Life Ball – which takes place every year in Vangardist’s home town of Vienna, all 3,000 copies of its Spring issue are printed with ink infused with HIV+ blood donated by three individuals living with the HIV virus.

Below is a letter received from an ex member of A4A, I hope by sharing it to you guys, that it will show you how A4A can change your life too and that love exists. On that note, check out Ryan’s love story below!

 

“Hey there A4A team,

Who says that dating in the gay world is as rare as unicorns or a successful Backstreet Boys comeback? I for one had at one stage, as well as many others. Being young and gay, tall, skinny, and blond, the idea of settling down and being with one person Is remote and almost outrageous. Finding a hookup is like shopping online; a couple of clicks here, and then he’s at my doorstep. Sure, true love seemed appealing, but just not obtainable in our world. Hookups were much more convenient. It was a random Saturday afternoon in the middle of summer, and I was doing some “shopping” on A4A to fill in the afternoon, just like I had numerous times past. This particular time, a handsome, young man by the name of Dean visiting from Cleveland had messaged me. We started a chat and within an hour, I was driving to his hotel room. We all know how that ended, but afterwards he seemed very sweet and intelligent to boot. He spent an evening with me showing him around LA and learning more about each other (like what our names were!), before he had to retire to bed to catch his early morning flight. Dean left the evening by saying that if I ever were in Cleveland, to contact him. Typically, that’s an empty promise or invite, especially given the distance. I couldn’t forget him that next morning, or the day later, or the one after that.

Hi Guys, Happy Cinco De Mayo to all our mexican friends all over the world, I hope you are all enjoying your week so far! Let’s keep on talking about “ass” again today, I’m sure you don’t mind, do you? I received an email from one of our members and he wanted me to publish his question on the blog. Check it out below:

“It kind of feels like I’m the only one who is gay and not into anything anal.  I like all the other stuff, sucking, kissing, touching, masturbating but anal doesn’t turn me on at all.  Is there anyone else out there that feels the same way?
