US response to hiv/aids.
I honestly think that the US is doing as much as they can to help find a cure for this disease. Even though they've been unsuccessful, they really rate trying to help the people that get infected with this disease. They can't really control that over 40,000 people in the US that are infected with this disease become immune to the medication that is prescribed to them. Even after this occurs, they prescribe them medication that may even help in the slightest degree. In Uganda and Thailand, the reaction was made quickly and research was done but there was such a lack of information it was not taken as seriously as it should have been. It was also not treated as it should be. The US definitely reacted in a better matter than Uganda and Thailand, even though they didn't come up with a cure, they did/do a better job of controlling the spread and they have a better grip on what it is and what can keep a person alive.
