Who’s to blame for misuse of HIV drugs in Kenya?

Reports of sex workers misusing HIV drugs have left activists wondering if the government invested enough in HIV education before purchasing medicine, worth 4 billion Kenyan shilling. Many sex workers say clients prefer to have unprotected sex and will pay more money for it. This being a business, the women often choose to have unprotected sex, then rush to a public hospital for post-exposure prophylaxis medication, claiming they have been raped or had a burst condom. Some sex workers have also expressed uncertainties about the sustainability of the project, so they go to different hospitals and stockpile the medication, just in case it is no longer available in public hospitals.

The Place of AIDS in a Post-2015 World

Realpolitik tells us that the era of AIDS exceptionalism is past. Post 2015, determinedly fighting for a stand-alone response to AIDS simply will not work in most contexts. Yet a stand-alone, fully resourced and ambitious response is worth fighting for in many countries, especially those that continue to face hyper-epidemics such as the southern African countries, where more than 25 per cent of the adult population continue to live with HIV.
