Author Sabrina Strings on the Racial Origins of Fat Phobia

"To the podcast. Sabrina thank you on so excited to have you so tell us about how you started to explore issues of body image and wait specifically for women of color while this is actually almost like a family legacy for me. My grandmother was born in rural georgia during the late nineteen thirties and so she was growing up the jim crow era and lived in a racially segregated community as part of the great migration in nineteen sixty. She traveled west and at that time for the first time in her life she lived and worked around white women and she was amazed by the number of white women diets. Seems like what is this. You know sort of like a typical black grandmother fashioned. By the time. I came of age in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s. When i was in high school she was still troubling over. This question like what is going on here. She would even ask me like why women dying to be thin. And i was like sixteen years old but it wasn't until about ten years later when i was working in a predominantly black community in san francisco baby hunters points. I met women of color who were hiv positive. And we're attaining an hiv medication adherence clinic where i was a researcher who refuse to take their medications for fear of gaining weight. And i thought oh. Wow you know this. What was clearly a phenomenon that was mostly about middle class white women in the nineteen sixties arguably even through the ninety s. Clearly by the early dots was something. That was impacting women of color as well so i wanted to be able to dig further into this question of why is it so important for women of all racial ethnic backgrounds at this point to feel like they need to discipline themselves and maintain a particular.

That's the baby on a Dua Lipa song that's in the top 10 of the Billboard's hot 100 chart.

If you didn't show up with HIV AIDS, you didn't show up today with HIV AIDS and get up there and essentially transmitted disease making died. 23 weeks put his cell phone right now.

The History Behind the Creation of the Pride Flag

"So we all know the wonderful rainbow flag that has become a symbol for all members of the alphabet mafia. But where did it come from. So in nineteen. Seventy eight artists and designers. Gilbert baker was commissioned by san francisco city supervisor harvey milk who was one of the first openly gay elected officials in the united states to make a flag for the city's upcoming pride celebrations harvey. Milk is a lot of good information on that man out there too. I almost covered him. You were about to say strawberries. I was like oh. She would've like stumble over at five times getting louder until we're like women. Are you stroking you no. Don't worry your past the time. Line of where i needed. Okay though so baker who was a prominent gay rights activist gave a nod to the stripes of the american flag but drew inspiration from the rainbow to reflect the mini groups within the gay community. He was influenced by the flag of races. Which has five horizontal stripes red white brown yellow and black which was popular among the world. Peace and hippie movements of the nineteen sixties. The rainbow flags commissioned by the fledgling pride committee were produced by a team that included artists. lynn seager. Who is known as the fairy argyle rainbow. According to her she created the original dying process for the flags. Thirty volunteers hand dyed in stitch. The first two flags for the parade. The original flag design had eight stripes with a specific meaning assigned to each colors. They were hot pink for six read for life orange for healing yellow for sunlight green for nature blue for magic and art into gopher serenity and violet for spirit i really like. Did you not know that. The flag colors actually signified. Why did but. I don't know i didn't know what they signified. I knew they all had significance. But what they dropped the sex one after the assassination of harvey milk on november twenty seven nineteen seventy eight. The demand for the rainbow flag greatly increased in response. The paramount flag company began selling version using stock rainbow. Fabric was seven stripes. Red orange yellow. Green turquoise blue and violet as baker ramped up production of his version of the flag he to dropped the hot pink stripe because fabric in. That color was not readily available. God it makes sense. That was a manufacturing issue. Yes like you just couldn't do it easily. So he said not school would just keep the other ones. So in june of two thousand and eight designer daniel quasar released a redesign incorporating elements from both the philadelphia flag in the trans pride flag to bring focus on inclusion in progress within the community or retaining the common six stripe rainbow designs the base the called the progress flag ads variation of chevron along the hoist the features black brown light blue pink and white stripes to include the communities of marginalized people of color trans individuals and those living with hiv

How old is the blood band. And where did it come from right so you you go back about four decades in and you've fair confronted with the really disquieting reality of the blood of the tainted blood scandal right.

It it fundamentally you know weakened trust in a meal what governments ought to be doing to ensure the health and safety of people who rely on government services so you go back to that point and you realize the sort of risks inherent in what protecting the blood supply you know actually means and unfortunately from that you know there was a good thing came from that.

My chemotherapy jeans enforcement they were all successful time after time. my only choice was to have a stem cell transplant. But the problem is and i think it's important to people to understand as if complex when you are. Hiv person to able to go for the stem cell transplant. So a hub. A paternity on. I would be turning grateful for it. By the teen. Honest meet and together. We gupta to offer me the possibility to have standard transplant for own related. Honor in two thousand sixteen for me. I i won the lottery. Accumulated i will be able to cure on only mccown sir. Only my and the come out to south seventeen would say. I decided. i'm together a guitar. Medical team to stop different environment occasion was professor was playing and earlier. And how complex. This fires eighth. So i by seventeen. I stopped medication and we took very cautiously approach to wait because our here mentioned a bow. My ethical in my big brother to monterey brown with salad passed away this year you know. We have to be cautious about rebounds of many happy for me we were able to buy twelve month. We were able to say. Oh i think he's a very promising Is like is not going to rebound by early to sell two nineteen. We defied it was time to show. The world is not only timothy brown it can be replicated in twenty twenty. I decided to to rebuild money to share my story. Hope and it's it's such an incredible story. How are you. how are you doing now undo. Okay i try my best to co with us. you know. A post transplant life as well with the kobe. Nine team so you have to keep kind. No extra cautious or careful about things. I'm keep bu- i always remained. Keeping my said positive and sinful full will happened to me and tried to help and start to keep the opportunity feel like being positive helping me to cope life and i think that was one of its tragedies today and last time on keeping these way keeping going that way. Brilliant and it's such a great story we've still got ravi gupta. Who was the doctor who treated him. So how do we know. That item is actually cured. Be entrepreneurs is a difficult one because his absence of hiv has been determined by looking very deep into blood cells. Full integrate today try v or even signs of hiv genetic material all tests came back negative but it was interesting after some exploration. We did find fossils of hiv genetic material. The material wasn't a capable of making viruses. It was little fragments that that's not unexpected impact and it was also found with the berlin patient so we used very sensitive methods both in blood and in tissues to explore the possibilities Hiv left behind. But as i said we couldn't find any evidence that there was any bars capable making new copies of itself and then is this something that could be rolled out on a wider scale. Of course the big problem here is number one that a two kills. We've described required a kema therapeutic regimens in order to destroy hiv infected cells and so those drugs come with side effects and they make you vulnerable to confections so there a risk attached to them. The second problem of course is you have to find a tissue match the donor who has the five deletion. And that's the second problem. Because says i said it's very rare and it's only in northern europeans in general so there are two major barriers to this the safety of using therapeutic drugs and transplant and secondly the donor matching. So what we believe. Is this proof of principle that really we can cure patients and that was a really important thing because the bell and patients happened and for ten years. We are not able to replicate it so the good news is that this is a real thing. The next step is finding ways to get back safely and cca five gene. Therapy is one avenue that started being exploited to modify. Ccf five in individuals who have hiv in order to explore whether that can help in this or induce remission and kill ravi gupta. Thank you so much. I'm before him on play. Thank you as well this week. We are considering the story of hiv in case it has managed to escape. You'll notice we are living in pandemic and we've gone from knowing nothing whatsoever about nineteen to having a vaccine against it in under year but we've been much less lucky with hiv decades on their stone. No vaccine why is that well. An maria jetty is from the university of liverpool. And she's with us hopefully to shed some light. So do you think anna maria that actually vaccines even theoretically possible given for decades of fruitless effort. So far yes indeed. I think that We have been these appointed believe the first vaccine study was done in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and it's been quite a long time and put up one hundred and fifty studies that have given us disappointing results. So he's a possible we continue to believe it is is it needed. Think we should perhaps remember that in two thousand and nineteen alone the word about one point seven million new infections in the world and if we really want to be successfully limiting the number of new infections we need to develop ineffective. A vaccine is biologically plausible. Is it possible to achieve a vaccine. What certainly through this three decades and more of studies we have learned a lot about hiv. The biology how the body responds to the infection. And yes. we've had setbacks but we also had some breakthroughs. I think that we mentioned for example. How difficulties to control the virus. Because of continues to change and escapes body responses to the immune responses that are also authored mechanisms that the vardis uses to evade the control and a major breakthrough. I will say as being the understanding of the fact that the virus uses sort of a decoy triggers the immune system in chasing after the wrong type of parts of the virus protecting away the through vulnerable part of the virus and this has been a recent relatively reason to understanding that gives us hope that we may be able to really direct immune responses towards the right part of the virus the right and then the right component of the barrow certain is need boulder pastor device and we discovered this response is being brodry affective against against the virus other sort of any bits of evidence you can point to that would reassure us that it is possible to make an immune response against the business end of the virus so that even despite its best efforts to decoy our immune system in the way you've just been describing we can nile it nonetheless. Well i think it's important to remember that we have some individuals to the tar exposed to hiv but not infected and we've also gain a lot of understanding about the interaction between the virus and immune system from studying people that are called elite controllers. These are people that are infectivity with a heather evidence of infection. Whipper day do not ashore progression of the disease. Somehow they found a way of keeping the virus at bay keeping the virus under control and that is a without the need the four ish treatment without the need for antiviral. And how many how. Many of those people that i didn't that many ram lineage and indeed is not a common occurrence about. We have learned a lot from studying this..

"Can impel your company at spitfire dot co dot uk now. The first of december was world aids day. And so this week we're going to take a look at hiv. The virus that causes aids to find out what we've learned over the four decades since it was discovered an also why we can make a covid nineteen vaccine in just ten months but not one for hiv but first a little quick roundup of what h- hiv aids actually halevi stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It's transmitted sexually and through contact with infected blood when it gets into the body. Hiv targets a specific white. Blood cell type could a cd for t lymphocyte and it inserts a copy of its genetic code into the dna of those cells. It can hide like this in an inactive state for years masked from the immune system before firing of its genes to produce new hiv particles in other instances rather than remaining hidden. The virus replicates rapidly making thousands of copies of itself and killing the cell in the process these viruses than leave to sell and move around the bloodstream and other bodily fluids to infect other susceptible cells or other people but critically when virus copies itself rather like a schoolboy making a shoddy job of copying down from the blackboard. Hiv makes large numbers of mistakes when it copies. It's genetic code is mutations and they caused the virus to change its appearance and it structure. This presents a moving target the immune system making it extremely hard to control and as a result. Hiv causes a progressive relentless destruction of the body cd. Four cell count now. These cells ability to fight off other infections is compromised and eventually after about ten years or so. Even trivial illnesses can't fought off and they can become life threatening when that happens. A person is said to have developed aids the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. And this is often when people die so hiv is arguably one of the worst pandemics that we've ever encountered so far more than thirty two million people have died and right now about forty million people living with the infection. So what is the history of the virus. H- hiv was covered by the paris pasteur institute. Scientists francois's barry sanussi and luke montana in nineteen eighty three but it had been circulating in humans for almost a century by then. But how do we know that. And where did hey chevy come from in the first place to shed some light on this from the foundation for aids. Research in new york is director of research. Rowena johnston serena what was the origin of hiv well. Hiv really is the story of the bad things that happened when a virus jumps from one species to another in the case of hiv chimpanzees that live in central west africa and they have a virus cold simian immunodeficiency virus obviously related to human immunodeficiency virus. And the most likely scenario is the back during the early and mid twentieth century. There was a lot of building of infrastructure there in central west africa mainly railways and there was a law that stated that workers on the railways had to be fed meat so the europeans in charge decided that the easiest way to accomplish that was to hunt chimpanzees. And i'm guessing. They made the laborers to that. In the course of ordering those animals that chimpanzees the blood might have made its way into cuts into the labor's hands and so the virus was able to make that jump. Then how did it spread to be the epidemic and pandemic. We know it today so we are talking about the colonial. An upheaval fill time history in africa. So we have a lot of these workers who may have acquired the infection. There was probably a lot of forced movement of many people in the country. There was poverty. There was sex work. They were vaccination campaigns most likely Needles were at least occasionally reused so there was probably some fairly dramatic spread of the virus. For let's say a couple of decades that twenty through the nineteen forties and fifties you have expansion of the roads railways. Virus was able to travel out in all directions from central west africa. Then certainly it headed southwards towards south africa which we know has the highest concentration of hiv cases. Today it made its way east north through africa and then in the late nineteen fifties and early nineteen sixties when for example the belgian. Congo's going through a really rough time. Getting independence on the virus was able to spread across. The oceans have made its way to the caribbean and from there to the united states. And then it gets a little bit. More speculative it's thought that it spread from the united states to europe and asia and australia. Although there probably direct introductions from africa to asia as well there's a close connection between south africa india on certainly we know that it was in the united states by the nineteen sixties ultimately identified in nineteen ninety-three while by the early eighties h. Anti had spread to enough people around the united states. That doctors noted that there was a cluster of mysterious medical cases in los angeles and new york.

Such an amazing story and it makes me so happy because to think that this was always a a terminal illness unless you managed it, and now there's people who are cured in opens the door for really direction of pharmacist, pharmacological drug design. And in other issues, but one other approach was taken in China. So is the CR five gene, the gene that was mutated in the Chinese twins by that one doctor. Yes Saadi. So yes. I would like to do odd south into the previous point of the of the barreling London patients though sure and that is that this had a very big rationales of course, and as you said, this was dusted because it opened a dollar for the cure of this very difficult infection but. That in some state head of states announced progress called zero eggs. But this became very soon avenue and that was not possible strategy for in adopted landscape because. In the standard bone marrow transplantations availing busy of a three treatment plus to find someone who are worse this mutation. So this was definitely not a realistic option although in those cases or effective. People who need marathons profession certainty the search for a data for to harbor donner is good strategy but you can see that this can be count probably in one hand in total in the planet and the more interesting. Opening Strategy. By these. Everything's is the gene editing. So gene anything is basically the way we engineer DNA in order to basically destroy this a Jean and basically. Reproduce the nature officer survived the two mutation. By human intervention. But. We need to keep in mind that this. Is Native. So once you do it, you're to destroy these gene and this is an important point in the case of the Chinese twins. Fortunately, this was done at the Ambien so. This two twins. Have Been Gene Eddie. From birth and they were these sify mutation in their gene. In their genome and all the offspring of this. Babies will inherit this plus the technology that. So this was definitely unethical because you cannot do this to just think that you might prevent aged infection. Randall. It's like shooting a fly with mizuko in other words. and. Also, the crisper cast technology was used to obtain these and the crisper Kostic -nology, although very hot and. Certainly fantastic. Is Not. Safe enough yet because we have the problem off targeting which we haven't understood the completely. That's very true and now these two twins are going to be living with presumably and potentially passing on this deletion NC CR five but do people who have the CR five mutation do they have any other incidents of unusual diseases or problems because what is what is? Typical Ligon as g protein coupled receptor. Yes. So the people that have this mutation leave a normal life basically, but we need to think that the system. Is a highly integrated system basically. Each camera sept or combined in different chemicals in each chemokine combined defer receptors. So, it might be that the people who have this genetic. Mutation have reorganized their chemokine system in order to deal with it. But if you intervene from outside with a genetic. You may actually create. A genetic situation which may lead to certain of holidays because these people are not ready to to to bear the knockout. The normal against officer five. The main nature alliance forces a five zero.

Where we talk about chemokines chemokines system well, give me a good back of the envelope idea about what the key kind system is. Yes. So the system is very, very complex and Faster. I can tell you just to remain in the theme. And to be more simple that. Five. And mostly, it's access with Sierra five is. The most studied cam binds to the receptor are a Bryan flannery axis. So basically, seizure five is very important sector in a in a large number of situations because it is a. Healthy in orchestrating the response of the immune system particularly. Directing.

"Unfortunately this time they're optimism was misplaced Ryan died April Eighth Nineteen Ninety at eighteen years old. He was surrounded by his mother sister grandparents and even his most famous cheerleader. Elton John who had flown to Indianapolis just to be there. Ryan had passed away one month shy of graduating high school a few months later congress passed his namesake legistlation the Ryan white comprehensive AIDS resources. Emergency Act or care act in August nineteen ninety. The Care Act was a bipartisan measure. Signed into law by President George H W Bush. It provided two hundred twenty point five million dollars in federal funds for care and treatment including grants to help low income PEOPLE AFFORD EXPENSIVE. Aids medicine managed by the US Department of Health Resources and Services Administration. The first grants under the care. Act were distributed just a short time later in nineteen ninety one nineteen ninety one also saw finally another drug that could treat HIV and AIDS. Die Dancing an oral solution of powder and water when a person sells absorbed identity. Seen It. Slow down the HIV's ability to replicate and spread through the body. Unfortunately didanosine couldn't cure AIDS and it had dangerous side effects including potential neural damage however it was very effective at slowing the progression of AIDS in patients who previously used. Act if he'd lived long enough to see it hit the market Ryan. White might have responded to die dancing very well and thanks to people like Ryan who helps de Stigmatize AIDS researchers were able to raise funds and keep looking for better cures their efforts led the FDA to approve the use of highly active antiretroviral therapy heart in Nineteen ninety-six heart referred to any treatment regimen. That involved two or more prescription medications for example researchers found that didanosine could be more effective when used in combination with a C. T. Each form of heart is customize to an individual specific needs. It works best when patients can have honest conversations with their doctors about what is and isn't working conversations free of judgment or shame while Heart Camp Cure AIDS heart can help people manage their symptoms and it will slow the progression of HIV and related conditions after five years the care act was reauthorized in nineteen ninety-six including several additions to make the initiative more accessible part of the legislation introduced funding for the newly approved heart treatment the following year the health resources and Services Administration created the HIV AIDS Bureau responsible solely for overseeing an administering funds in relation to the Ryan White HIV AIDS program. In two thousand. The Care Act was reauthorized again. This time with new provisions for enhancing the health outcomes of patients with HIV and AIDS and in two thousand six it was renamed the Ryan White HIV AIDS treatment modernization. Act of two thousand six up until this point. Most AIDS breakthroughs had been about managing the disease in slowing its progress. But then something remarkable happened. Something that had never happened before Timothy Ray Brown was cured of AIDS. He didn't go public until two thousand ten until then he was simply known as the Berlin patient Brown tested positive for HIV in Nineteen ninety-five on February. Sixth Two thousand seven. He underwent a stem cell transplant to treat his leukemia within three months. Hiv couldn't be detected in his blood stem cell. Transplants are highly controversial and incredibly expensive. But another possible solution appeared in two thousand nineteen that year nature reported on an HIV patient in London. Who received a bone marrow transplant? He currently has no detectable. Hiv in his blood while the procedure is too expensive and risky for widespread use researchers view the London patient and the Berlin patient as proof that HIV can be cured meanwhile other strides are being made to prevent its spread in the past decade the FDA approved a more accessible drug that would prevent HIV transmission through sacs and drug use prep or pre exposure. Prophylaxis is a highly effective medication for HIV negative individuals who are at risk of contracting the disease. Thanks to prep. Scientists today have the tools to halt AIDS in its path but they still have to work around a lot of social stigma. Nearly forty million people live with the disease worldwide. One in seven are unaware that they're infected and may inadvertently spread it if they're too embarrassed or afraid to get tested. Information campaigns have helped a little as efforts to fix the mistakes of the past including the demonization of Gaetano. Duga or patient. Oh as we discussed last week. Duga was identified in the early days of the AIDS epidemic. He was dubbed Patient Zero by Randy shifts author of and the band played on the nineteen eighty-seven book and the Nineteen ninety-three movie adaptation on. Hbo depicted Duga as simply a bad guy. Somehow he got infected with the virus and then he continued to sleep around and spread the disease. It took more than thirty years but Gaetano Gaas name was finally cleared in a study published in nature in two thousand sixteen. It describe a new genetic analysis of stored blood samples from Duga it proved DIGOS. Specific strain of HIV was prevalent in the country long before he began globetrotting with Air Canada. In nineteen seventy four. In other words he wasn't responsible for the spread of AIDS. Since dugas name was cleared. Scientists have continued to search for solutions and for ways to right. The wrongs of the past. Nobody can bring back those individuals who died when AIDS was so hated. That officials refused to cooperate to find a cure. But there's still time to build a better future. New Breakthroughs are promising but only so long as doctors patients researchers in the federal government are willing to work together the history of AIDS and HIV is one of stigma government irresponsibility and unnecessary deaths with better education in open communication.

"This map Tony was looking at and it had been released by the Centers for Disease Control the showed places the agency thought were most vulnerable to an HIV outbreak not big cities but rural counties including more than half of the counties in West Virginia. That's pretty ridiculous. Math easy about it and and I called her back and I was working on this stuff. This is crazy. Where's the money for this and was like There's no resources nobody's nobody's working on it and I guess you and on up the phone this map it almost perfectly flee matches up with a different map one that shows where the pharmaceutical companies sent most of their pain pills at the height of the OPIOID crisis. Tony says the understand. How the CDC decided that people in Appalachia were at risk for HIV? You've got to know what you're looking at here these counties. They're in trouble because of high levels unemployment low incomes and also because of their overdose rates that's where HIV comes from so it had to come because as you've got opioid use H- you've got poverty. You got low educational attainment so the only thing that can come next is HIV because you've All of these factors so when you look at that map you see Rachel the not there but it's the caboose of the train ever since she saw this map Tony's been waiting keeping an the health alerts she gets and then the spring cluster of HIV. Infections is now present in Campbell county the majority of the cases are attributed to the sharing area of needles among drugging. And that's when they found out holy Moly we have a problem. Human Services reveal that Cavalcante has had more HIV. It'd be cases in a single year than the entire state of West Virginia. Since two thousand eight in the last six months dozens of West Virginians have been diagnosed most with HIV many of them in a single county Tony says this HIV cluster might look like an outlier but she thinks thinks it's just the beginning.

"Today we're talking about the progress that has been made in HIV treatment. Over the past three decades. Dr Maggie Hoffman. Terry has spent the past five years researching HIV and providing care to patients living with the virus once we started to understand you know the basics about HIV before we had any treatments. Tell me a little bit about what that time. Period was like I think very scary because initially we didn't know even how HIV have you were spread. My first exposure to it was as a pre medical student. I went over to a local hospital and worked with the infection. Doctor there but he he took me in to see two cousins who both had. HIV and held their hands without gloves. Because he said Is that I think it would be a terrible thing saying to be alone and to not be able to touch someone and to be the sick Because they were both dying and beyond that they just didn't know what to do except to keep people going as long as you could They used lots of different palliative kind of things things that we use said end of life to this day with cancer patients but that was all that was available to us and really so the first ray of hope was really. AZT The first drug. That was it was used to treat it. That is true. I remember the posters of vividly from my third year of medical school with an alarm clock on that said. If you're willing to get up every four hours and you have AIDS. We have a drug for you. I went to medical school and Temple North Philadelphia which was very hard hit area the AIDS epidemic even early on and people were lining up to get this magical drug even if it meant you got up every four hours to take at least a gave people finally some home before we talk about how. HIV drugs work. You need to know a couple of things. Our immune system is made up of all kinds of different cells. One type called T.. Cells specializes in protecting our bodies from viruses like HIV Maggie calls HIV a smart virus because it specifically attacks those t cells basically the virus kills the very cells that are trying to hunt them one way. HIV kills t cells is by hijacking genetic machinery Henry inside those cells forcing the cells to bake more and more copies of the virus eventually bursting out of the cell killing it so easy t- The first major drug targeted. HIV Pretty early on in its viral. Life cycle disrupting this process. The problem was that easy T- worked for a few months but in and of of itself as a single agent the virus was smart enough to get around it so it improved things for a few months but it never improved things in in the long run right that continued I did my infection fellowship. Nineteen Ninety two to one thousand nine hundred ninety four and it was still similar. At that time you were are uniformly telling young people time and again That they were going to die and that they should get their fares in order that they had children we would get them to meet with a case manager to figure out who was going to raise their children It was just a terrible. I can't I can't imagine what that was like. I think what often kept us going was the dream that better treatment would come along and we were fortunate enough in our fellowship to be involved in nearly nearly studies on protease inhibitors. So let's talk about that because that was another big Development and other big moment in this treatment was the development of heart and protease inhibitors. So talk to me a little bit about those so. HIV is like snowflakes in the body every time it divides it mutates at at least one spot and by doing so no to viruses in the body your body if you're infected with HIV. No two viruses viruses are alike in that way it is able to figure out how to get around easy T- so what we did was we developed drugs that hit hit from other targets and we're more potent So hard stands for highly active antiretroviral therapy And by combining signing three drugs that were working you know usually at least two different angles two different ways and the body We were able to finally finally get the virus. All the way controlled. Get it down to what we call. Undetectable but if we stopped the medicines it will come back but but having said that many of them were anywhere from ten to eighteen pills a day and they often cause side effects such as nausea vomiting meeting And leipold dystrophy which was this redistribution fat. But as these singled tablet regimens came out. They did not what caused these side effects. Right so that kind of brings us to the next big game changing moment around two thousand seven where you know a lot of those treatments that are a a lot of pills have become kind of one or two pills yes so the single pill once a day you know very much changed. The game from having to Rearrange Injured Day around two to three times having to ingest multiple pills so they were much better and much easier to take and greatly improve people's both compliance with the medicine the likelihood that they would take it every day and they're virus wouldn't develop resistance but improve their lifestyle also because because all they had to do was make sure they took that pill as they went to bed each night or with breakfast each morning Safer single tablet pills have come along now now containing integrase inhibitors and those are very easy and much much less toxic pills to take And I think we're really finally at the point in time That easy one pill a day combinations are here. Maggie says these treatments when used correctly and effectively also act as a form of prevention. When it comes to transmitting? HIV through sex treating HIV itself and getting that viral load down to undetectable undetectable prevents many many infections because even if patients sleeps with someone else so someone who has HIV if thyroid medication and they have unprotected sex. They are extremely unlikely to spread it to someone else If they are on medication so that's one. The type of prevention another form of prevention came in twenty twelve a strategy called pre exposure prophylaxis or prep in this case a daily pill. That's taken by people who don't have HIV and it prevents them from getting HIV from somebody else but when it comes to the latest treatments despite the real progress that's been made the issue of access is to these life. Changing medications is also very real. What what still needs to be done so that everybody that needs them has them well? The drugs need to be affordable because there have been states where the drugs have been waiting listed We have AIDS drug assistance programs and all of our states but they are federal dollars that have to be batch by state dollars and not every state matches them and Pennsylvania gene you were. I practice were very fortunate because we have a very very good extremely good program but there are many southern states where that's not the case And that has has been a problem for a while according to the US Department of Health and Human Services in twenty eighteen only sixty two percent of the worldwide HIV positive population were accessing assessing antiretroviral. Therapy and in some countries progress towards preventing new infections and increasing access to treatment is actually slowing down or getting worse but for those who do have access to care. The progress is undeniable. You know now that people that do have access to these like good. HIV drugs are living longer and healthier lives. Has that kind of shifted your role as a healthcare provider I in types of patients that you're seeing now The big pushes rushes looking at getting your patient into old age and Many of my patients I think our oldest patient currently is eighty seven But the average change our patients now is over fifty So we're looking at caring for later middle aged and geriatric population And that is much of what my care is pre you know in today's world So I admit early in that epidemic. I why it never thought I would be reading geriatric articles but that is much of what. HIV CARE is now a big. Thanks to both Maggie and and stash for talking with us.

"And so the Trump administration is pushing this initiative, which I think is is really it's grounded in in public health scientific knowledge and the tools the same time the administration wants to and its budget request repeal the ACA in repeal Medicaid expansion and cut back on access and so that kind of works in the opposite direction. So it's gonna be interesting to see how this plays out. HIV doesn't exist in a vacuum. It works opposite direction because lots of patients who might need access or getting it through the ACA. And if that was to go away, they wouldn't be able to get the treatment and care that they need. Exactly. So the ACA has we've studied this at has expanded access for people with HIV in the US. They've gotten more coverage. They've got more access medications are available for free or low cost. And so, yeah, if you cut back on that it's going to create a situation where people just don't have access or or the other the other thing to think about it. Maybe coverage will be maintained, but interruptions, could happen. So what happens if someone with HIV is on is in care and then treatment? Gets interrupted while resistance could occur. They could become infectious if their viral load is suppressed on treatment, they're not infectious. But if they lose, you know, lose access to treatment, even if it's four period short period of time, it could have these incredible effects. So those dynamics really do work in the opposite direction here, and it will be really important to sort of see how that plays out. There's one other factor when it comes to administration HIV policy, and that's the global policy. So I wrote on the the this this week after the funding announcement, and you and I talked about it. And might take Jen was the Trump administration is saying to congress put America's HIV pedantic, I because it's looking to also cut international funding to programs like pep far. Right, which was the signature, George W Bush administration effort to deal with HIV and aids around the globe. The Trump administration is looking to take more than a billion dollars out of pep far. They're looking to take money out of the global fund which deals with HIV and aids. So there's actually more money total coming out. Than being put in to HIV efforts. Exactly it it. That is true. The Trump administration for the third year neuro is asking congress to dramatically cut, the global HIV program and global funds and prior to that point that had never happened before. I mean, George W Bush pushed this launch this incredible program that's been heralded by everybody as a success. Seventeen million lives around the globe cracked and really has changed the trajectory of what would have happened sub Saharan Africa real large because of this pedantic. So it's there's no one is not a question about its success. It's not a question about the reach that it's had, but there's still a huge gap in what's needed. So due to ask for these kinds of cuts. They're so dramatic than they first happened three years ago. People were kind of stunned. Congress rejected them happen. Again, second time. Congress rejected them happen again. Now, congress will likely reject them, but it's a very different stance than what we're seeing on the domestic side. And and you know, it's an epidemic and it's a virus. And so it's kind of a weird way to do that you make very important point, the Trump administration releases its budgets, this is widely seen in Washington DC as as a little bit of kabuki theatre it. It's a signal. It's important because this is what President Trump would do if he could get his way at the same time. This is not the way it's going to be congress controls the power. The purse, right. So pep far and these global funds we firmly expect to your point that those will largely be preserved. But that that raises the question for me wishes. So how should we feel about the domestic funding that the Trump administration wants to? Why would congress agree to some things and disagree with others? How do we know what they'll do? That's very good question. I've actually been thinking about this because yes in the case of the global side, congress, even when there is a Republican controlled house and Republican controlled Senate before the Twenty-eight teen election. They rejected the president's cuts on this on pet far. So they basically said, no, we're we don't share that vision..

"But it's the stigma that makes it such a difference disease in the new way, you can get a stigma where you can address Dick Morris by talking about things and being open about things this should be in the school curriculum, and it's that ripple effect of a conversation starting so far. They haven't done another national campaign. I think they need to do one. And social media is a great platform in this is a great platform. So it's looking at every platform possible to to start those conversations we have we have one ask on our website of is like go. We'd when you've seen this go away and talk to ten of your friends about HIV. And then ask them to talk ten of their friends. The whole treatment makes HIV manageable has got a double edged sword to it because it does from a bio medical point of view. But you still got the stigma an intil is is addressed and reduces you'll still going to have people who are presenting late. You still gonna have people who dying, and you still going to have people who you know, if they were able to access access services without the fear of discrimination, all the stigma the then that's why we still got third of the population walking around not knowing about their HIV status third. Wow. I mean, Sophie, a love that practical step talk to ten of e people. And hopefully, they talk to another ten, you know, because that's exactly what needs to do needs to be done a news spreads and people have say much more access to the internet and stuff.

"But it's the stigma that makes it such a difference disease in the new way, you can get a stigma where you can address Dick Morris by talking about things and being open about things this should be in the school curriculum, and it's that ripple effect of a conversation starting so far. They haven't done another national campaign. I think they need to do one. And social media is a great platform in this is a great platform. So it's looking at every platform possible to to start those conversations we have we have one ask on our website of is like go. We'd when you've seen this go away and talk to ten of your friends about HIV. And then ask them to talk ten of their friends. The whole treatment makes HIV manageable has got a double edged sword to it because it does from a bio medical point of view. But you still got the stigma an intil is is addressed and reduces you'll still going to have people who are presenting late. You still gonna have people who dying, and you still going to have people who you know, if they were able to access access services without the fear of discrimination, all the stigma the then that's why we still got third of the population walking around not knowing about their HIV status third. Wow. I mean, Sophie, a love that practical step talk to ten of e people. And hopefully, they talk to another ten, you know, because that's exactly what needs to do needs to be done a news spreads and people have say much more access to the internet and stuff. And it's like there are some really good websites out. The you've got T H T, go aids map. Now, who I think you had here recently got the severe for a website. You've got the women in prep website.

"You know, I've started talking to friends about it and stuff, and and then I'll call you in my off name women for Jewish their hours at work because of the impact of the menopause. You know, the hot flushes, you can kind of you know, you can do with not necessarily pleasant. But for me, they'd be one of the more minor ones. Will they've been getting worse recently. It's the insomnia, and when you're in the workplace, you the to work, so you can't really kind of be scenes be going in and out if you mood swings. If you're in a professional environment. So I think one of the issues with women living with HIV is that GP's get very scared about prescribing anything because they didn't feel like they have a handle on antiretroviral therapy. And it's true that there are. Lays of interactions with other drugs by think GP's, lack that specialist knowledge. So if a woman who's already have HIV and presents with menopausal symptoms. They get told because they're living with HIV. It's probably that say, they get told going speak to their HIV specialist and their HIV's specialist. Probably doesn't know anything about menopause, and because my women access hormone replacement therapy three that GP, and there's always that barrier thing with women living with HIV that you if you go and see oh GPO GP feels like they don't know enough about HIV. They kind of send you back to the hospital. I think women in general get flipped off with menopausal symptoms. Probably women living with HIV, even more. So because deep is reluctant to prescribe anything for them. So that's prime. Can we talk about your report it did invisible? No longer in regards to HIV prevention in women, what has been learned or gleaned from this report what could be done to. Improve HIV prevention in women. There was you know, historically, been little done in terms of helping women identify around the risk of HIV. We still don't necessarily know the whole picture of which women are at risk say getting the information in the education out there. You know, everyone accesses a GP. No, everyone accesses a sexual health clinic. So loss of the conversations that are going on at the moment is about engaging with the community organizations that are on the ground level. But but no even community. No, even just community organizations. It's about finding out where those communities meet the community spaces the communities are there, and it's going in and starting a conversation with them. So it's looking at how we can get the conversations happening beyond a sexual health connect because not everyone is going to access that. And then it's also about educating them. To the different forms of prevention methods that goes beyond a condom because that's not going to be everybody's choice in for some. Then not going to be able to negotiate that for example. So is there anything else in poll that was highlighted that? Perhaps you think needs to be spoken about. Every page. When it comes to the national response to HIV all women are by default seemed to be heterosexual. There is a lack of understanding of the diversity of sexualities of women living with an at risk of HIV as well as a lack of targeted information and interventions to support sexual health needs of lesbian, bisexual women and women if other sexualities, and that is absolutely true. Yeah. How can we include women will in this discussion around HIV? What can we do? Maybe we can just get one bit of advice from both of you. I think it's really challenging because I think as safety said women are much less able to perceive their risk of getting HIV. I think education is always going to be the key. I mean, I've started talking about to my children, they're five and t. Five. I mean, I pass me my hopeless fee of life is I start hooking synergy can. Nightstop king. And I think the thing that just permeates every conversation and every experiences stigma. It's a lifelong condition. That's really good treatments. We can prevent transmission. People living with HIV have every other choice. Everyone else does..

"These are incredible advancements that we have made in fighting hiv yet they have not managed to dent the perception that most americans have of the virus and those living with it and i don't want you to think on downplaying the danger of this virus and i am not ignorant of the harrowing past of the aids epidemic i am trying to convey that there is hope for those infected and hiv is not the death sentence it was in the 80s and now you may ask and i asked this question myself initially where the stories where are these people living with hiv why haven't they been vocal how can i believe these successes are these statistics without seeing the successes and this is actually very easy question for me to answer fear stigma and shame these keep those living with hiv in the closet so to speak our sexual histories are his personal to us as our medical histories and when you overlap the too you can find yourself in a very sensitive space the fear of how others perceive us when we're honest keeps us from doing many things in life and this is the case for the hiv positive population to face social scrutiny and ridicule is the price that we pay for transparency and why become a martyr when you can effectively pass as someone without hiv after all there are no physical indications you have the virus there's no sign that you wear.
