What about Africa?

Gisselquist et al seem to accept the reliability of the HIV antibody tests as well as viral causation, but they have published alarming data in Africa that suggests sex is not the primary means of transmission, but rather nosocomial infections in the poorly staffed and funded rural hospitals and health centers.


A few of the Gisselquist papers are available on Roberto Giraldo's site:

1. Let it be sexual: how health care transmission of AIDS in Africa was ignored

2. Mounting anomalies in the epidemiology of HIV in Africa: cry the beloved paradigm

3. HIV infections in sub-Saharan Africa not explained by sexual or vertical transmission
