Gambia’s Jammeh Says To Build Herbal AIDS-Cure Hospital

Yahya Jammeh (Reuters) – AIDS patients would be offered an herbal cure at a 1,111-bed hospital in Gambia that the president said on Tuesday he plans to build despite medical concerns the treatment is dangerous.

President Yahya Jammeh said in 2007 he had found a remedy of boiled herbs to cure AIDS, stirring anger among Western medical experts who claimed he was giving false hope to the sick.

"With this project coming to fruition, we intend to treat 10,000 HIV/AIDS patients every six months through natural medicine," Jammeh said in his New Year's address, adding that he expected the 1,111-bed hospital to open in 2015.

The World Health Organisation and the United Nations have said Jammeh's HIV/AIDS treatment is alarming mainly because patients are required to cease their anti-retroviral drugs, making them more prone to infection.

Jammeh said in October that 68 HIV/AIDS patients undergoing his herbal remedy had been cured and discharged, the seventh batch since the treatments began five years ago.Yahya JammehGambia's Jammeh says to build herbal AIDS-cure hospital despite medical concerns the treatment is dangerous

Other African leaders have drawn criticism for extolling the power of natural remedies to combat AIDS.

The administration of former South African President Thabo Mbeki was ridiculed for denying there was a link between HIV and AIDS while prescribing meaningless treatments such as beet root instead of internationally proven medicines.

The HIV rate in Gambia is relatively low compared to other African states, with 2 percent of the country's roughly 1.8 million people infected, according to the United Nations.

Jammeh came to power in Gambia, a sliver of land on Africa's west coast that is popular with sun-seeking European tourists, in a bloodless military coup in 1994.

He is accused by activists of human rights abuses during his rule, and most recently drew international criticism for executing nine death-row inmates by firing squad.

Jammeh is joke and true killer.
He killed a lot and still looking forward to do more. We don't need you so-called medicines.

What a shame. 1,111 beds. It looks like one of those Jalang things again. I hope that no fool will put their lives at the hands of this lunatic. Probably another scheme to continue his practice of human sacrifice.

I agree Mr Peters.

There is little understanding in this piece of the difference between HIV {Human Immune Virus}

and AIDS { Aquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome}

You do not cure AIDS. You treat it usually with Co triximol{Septri n} or other forms of clinical scientifically approved proferlaxis.

Aids is a by product of immune suppression whereby...the bodies immune system is destroyed...leaving the body at the "mercy" of opportunist infections.

Which usually occur below 200 cd 4 cells.

Normal is around 450 plus.

There is NO known cure... and if there was, the lab test would need to show a CD4 cell count of plus 20...in "cured" patients.

There is some evidence that certain herbal remedies can reduce the depletion of CD4 cells. But no evidence that they can cure HIV.
