HIV/AIDS: say what ...

The following is excerpted from a letter written by Dora Uzo, of the Association of Concerned Mothers in Lagos, published in today's edition of The Guardian (Nigeria) ...
SIR: We are greatly disturbed that in spite of proofs that condoms do not prevent HIV/AIDS, but rather aid the spread of it, NAFDAC [National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control] has gone ahead to approve their manufacture in Nigeria by a Belgian company.

The use of condoms has brought about the unfortunate consequences of promiscuity and also the death of millions of victims. It is a well-known fact that countries within the African continent that have encouraged the use of condoms have been witnessing an astronomical rise in the death rate due to infection by the dreaded HIV/AIDS virus.
