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.

So of course she went to the nearest emergency room. She knew that medication taken promptly could prevent H.I.V., and she wasn’t taking any chances.
