This morning I listened to a piece on Radio 4 about a new drug which reduces the liklihood of HIV being passed on (the detail isn't important for this blog post).
The expert said that ideally the person in the relationship who was HIV+ would take it, and this would not only prevent them passing it on to their partner, but would increase their lifespan as well. "However," he added, "the partner could take the drug. For instance in the situation where a husband is HIV+, but refuses to talk about it, won't wear a condom and won't take a drug, then the wife could take it to help prevent her contracting HIV."
Whoa, hold on a moment. The husband cares so little for his wife that he won't even wear a condom to prevent her getting HIV??
In that 'situation' I think I'd be questionning the whole relationship, not worrying about who takes the drug.
