Obama Cuba Revolution Plot; HIV Services As A Cover
« on: August 04, 2014, 03:08:43 PM »
Curious your thoughts of the alledged ploy, which used HIV as a cover.  If true, it will be interesting to learn whether they were actually giving good HIV prevention education, or whether it was just for show.  And, do you think it is appropriate to use HIV in this way, even if they truly gave good prevention education?  I would think any HIV services there will now all be suspect.  And, many Cubans afraid to go to these.

It seems this all went on from 2008 to 2010 -- Obama wasn't sworn in until 1/2009 so when exactly was this program planned, meaning before implementation? I'm unclear from the article.

This thread made me wonder how well Cuba had dealt with HIV/AIDS.  As it turns out, according to the article linked below, they've kept it largely under control by using quarantine.  This, of course, raises some interesting questions about individual freedom vs. effectively combating an epidemic.

Forced quarantine ended there twenty years ago -- those that chose to live in "sanitarium" communities do so voluntarily. IIRC something like 50% do so. They also have the lowest HIV prevalence in the Caribbean, and least amount of deaths.

Well, almost.  The article I linked said that there is still a mandatory eight-week quarantine, which consists mostly of education.  Also, if an HIV+ person is caught having unsafe sex, they go back to quarantine permanently. 

But yes, forced, permanent quarantine for everybody ended in 1994.
