    Researchers on hiv/AIDS have found there is an increase in resistant HIV strains in africa. Reporting in the 19th international AIDS conference in washington,there is 1-7.3percent rise in resistant strains in East africa as compared to 1-3.7 percent in southern africa. This rise has been associated with a START-STOP use of ARVs. In Lancet it has been reported that 26percent of HIV patients have resistant strains in east africa as compared to 14percent in southern africa. Kwa wale tuliopatwa na janga hili au wenye ndugu walioathirika tujitahidi kufuata matumizi sahihi ya hizi dawa. Adherence with medication prolongs ur life making you complete some of your dreams. Good day!!
