War Surgeon Gino Strada: “Media Not Interested in Human Tragedies” of War

some context: “Afghanistan is a country where 70% of the population has never seen a doctor or a nurse in their lives. It is a country where there is no safe water. It is a country where there is malnutrition. But on top of it, it is a country that, after this last aggression of 2001, 2002, has seen problems it has never experienced before: prostitution and AIDS. AIDS was an unknown phenomenon, as prostitution was, in Afghanistan. And now in Kabul you have prostitutes, and health authorities are starting to be concerned with a possible spread of HIV, which would be a tremendous tragedy in a country without medical infrastructure or without the possibility to look after patients.” (Dr Gino Strada) – More here.
