POZ Magazine: HIV-Positive? Get Screened for Anal Cancer

All positive people can—and should—be screened for anal cancer, says a recent VA study.
Testing their HIV-positive clients for anal cancer, the Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital in Miami found a high rate of precancerous anal lesions (and two cases of cancer)—nearly 15 percent, whether or not the clients had a history of anal sex. Many providers and researchers believe early detection and treatment can cut down on complications and death.

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
