  1. In a recent survey, one in seven gay men in the UK who had been tested were found to be HIV+. In London, the figure was higher (one in five). Perhaps this breakthrough will lead to a proper vaccine.

  2. (slightly incredulous…) If the US army were involved in testing this vaccine, why wasn’t it tested on US people in the US?

  3. Can someone explain to me why the US Army is sponsoring this research in Thailand … while at the same time back home operating the DADT policy and ‘dishonourably discharging’ gay people out of the Army?

    And will AndySam kindly explain what the hell the link between the two is? Or is he still stuck in the stone-age mentality of believing that HIV only affects gays?

    As for why the US military has been funding this sort of research: because the HIV pandemic is seen as a potential source of instability.

    why wasn’t it tested on US people in the US?

    Some testing was done in the US.
