[quote]Cure for HIV/AIDS Found!
Kumasi, May 13, GNA - HIV/AIDS victims can heave a huge sigh of relief since there is now a potent herbal medicine which is reported to be capable of totally curing HIV/AIDS.

"Koankro", the herbal mixture prepared by Mr Kamara Agyapong, Director of Peace Herbal Clinic at Ejisu in Ashanti, has been confirmed by the Clinical Analysis Laboratory of the Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), as capable and potent in curing HIV/AIDS.

Tsooboi! After all the necessary checks, it will be even more Tsooboi!!

What happened to Opanyin Drobo?

In the global fight to find a cure for HIV, i dont think finding the cure in Africa or for that matter Ghana will be out of place and unthinkable. For all we know it could be a lone plant, leaf, bark or root somewhere that is probably holding the secret to a cure.
A few years back, one Opanyin drobo(a herbalist) layed claim to a cure and i remember a lot of International laboratory interest and media attention but that frenzy fizzled out.
If this discovery doesn't turn out to be a hoax and a joke then who knows maybe this time we are on to a winner. The possibilities of plants as food and medicine are endless, so i guess anything is possible.

THE CRINGE FACTOR! WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT GOD MADE THREE WORLDS AND THAT I COME FROM THE THIRD WORLD. THE ISSUE OF RACE IS GEOGRAPHICAL AND NOT A STATUS SYMBOL AND NEITHER IS MY SKIN BLACK NOR YOURS WHITE.

He died before he'd let anyone in on his secret. Apparently by suicide...

Social Acceptance and championing the cause of HIV sufferers

Its a shame Opanyin Drobo died under such tragic circumstances, especially if he had the antidote to the problem. Was he pressurised or intimidated by any quarter regarding his find to make him want to take his own life?

The sad thing for HIV carriers is lack of social acceptance and understanding. The hype surrounding the disease meant that people freaked out about things like mosquitoes being carriers to other mundane theories. It wasn't after extensive education that people caught on that transmission was through body fluids.

But extensive campaigns and education still hasn't changed hearts and minds and HIV sufferers are not treated with the same compassion, understanding and acceptance as other medical conditions.
Some in the medical fraternity from first response units to nurses and doctors who should do better are equally biased.
Issues affecting sufferers mean they stand to lose anything from family, friends, jobs, visas and permits and being treated as outcasts by their communities and close circles if they came out. This sort of attitude can't be good in society.

But that not-withstanding i think the biggest problem is the thousands of people walking about with the disease and not knowing because they are afraid/shy of being tested. Those are the walking time bombs waiting to happen and the fact that tests are voluntary makes for worrying statistics because no one knows exactly how many people are infected or not. Perhaps if the social stigma was lifted off HIV and treated as any medical condition like Hypertension or Cancer people will feel more inclined to have these tests.

The terminology regarding different facets of the disease and treatment is also to some extent mind boggling and complicated and can put a downer on people seeking information. Still i think there is no excuse for not being well informed, aware of modes of transmission and the need to play it safe and have tests every six months. There's an interesting website on HIV. Check it out.

Its amazing to read all the different facets of the disease and what is happening globally and current medical advances. It is a real eye opener.

Regarding the current find in Kumasi (if it is true)i can magine the scramble for the prototype if it gained International acclaim. Man, that would shoot Ghana onto the World Map in graphings hitherto unseen before. I shall be reading further developments with interest.

Kumasi or Ho?

Wow!
The only question I have is: Is it better to find the AIDS cure in Kumasi or Ho?
:-)

Very nice indeed! I'm pretty

Very nice indeed! I'm pretty sure he thought to make some more noise after the Kumasi announcement.

All the better for everyone--2 options is better than 1 :)

And here again, I'm assuming both remedies are cures until proven otherwise. Good piece of work from the Chronicle and Mr Deglo.

Grrrreat!

Nice! I like how he's challenging others too. And not just verbally energetic, like some of these guys.

I am quite dissapointed by the comments that followed though. These are the people that need to be thinking more openly and hopefully for Ghana (and Africa) where AIDS is concerned. Anyway, I still believe it only takes 1 great mind and 1 unique vision...

Ghanaweb stuff

i can't even take those people at ghanaweb forums' serious. it's comic relief if you ask me.

i'll like to see some video evidence or documentaries done about Koankro or this recent discovery at Ho to promote the work of these herbalists. They need some exposure and a couple of articles on Ghanaweb would not help in taking them seriously.

RE: Ghanaweb stuff

I must say that some of the comments were outrageous and uncalled for. It's a shame!
