After Apparent Missile Attack on Malaysian Airliner, Consider Behavior Modification

This would be the best recourse for people at high risk of HIV.  Men who have sex with men, have 19 times greater chance of contracting this horrendous disease, according to the World Health Organization Sex workers appear to have a 14 times greater susceptibility, and the incidence is 50 times higher among transgender women.

What relation does this have to the loss of the Malaysian Airliner?  About a hundred of the passengers aboard that plane were HIV researchers flying to a big International AIDS Conference in Australia.  The list includes Dr. Joep Lange, former president of the International AIDS Society, and WHO spokesman, Glenn Thomas were among those lost.   This is a big disaster from the standpoint of medical progress in combating HIV, as well as a personal tragedy for many thousands of people.

Your friendly Pharmer, always a big fan of preventative medicine, suggests behavior modification as a means of preventing infection with HIV, (a rather fastidious bug) which, barring assaults, is not too difficult to avoid in most cases.

The  effects of this act of war on the Malaysian Airlines flight  MH 17 will ripple outward for many generations.
