GGR323 - Aids Epidemic & Treatment of Females
- tend to link to process of sexuality - missing huge portion of picture
- as society, tend not to deal with it - especially in developing countries
epidemic
- infection levels are increasing dramatically
- taken attention away from HIV/AIDS and transmission process
- in developing world countries, infection rates highest among young females - huge
social costs (family and society, cohesion of society, etc)
- targets different segment of population
- taking away centre of population and what's left behind is young and elderly group
- changes dependency element
- impact economic productivity in society
- increasing number of orphans because parents are dying - social destruction
- losing leadership and future potential of society
- cost to health care & implication for health care
- expensive disease
- more attention given to drugs for HIV/AIDS rather than other parts of health care
- diseases such as malaria are not being funded because of AIDS
- most people die because their immune system is affected
- responsibility
- issues associated with costs of drugs
- drug companies have no interest into doing research to cure disease
- focus on providing drugs that allow people to live WITH the medical condition -
constant profit
- market for drugs greater in developed countries because it's more wealthy
- most drug companies focus on diseases that impact developed rather than developing
countries
- drug companies focus on few strands of HIV/AIDS that impact developed countries,
therefore not the best drugs for developing countries
- personal responsibility issue - message of media to young population
table:
- unprotected sexual intercourse - transmission rate per exposure is low, but there is
multiple exposures, therefore probability still high

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
