A study out of UCSF brings to light the issue of co-infections. If a female has bacterial vaginosis as well as HIV, there is a higher risk of HIV being transmitted to a male partner. Since BV is the most common bacterial infection among women of child-bearing age in the U.S., it’s important to keep this in mind! Since BV is also easily treatable with antibiotics, this should be something we can prevent!
Yep, it’s true. In Botswana, post-graduate scholarships are limited to those who are HIV-negative, and HIV tests are required to prove it. What do you guys think about this?
