Abstract


A recent double-barreled smoking gun calls attention to mistakes that fuel Africa’s HIV/AIDS epidemics. The first smoking barrel is the discovery of an HIV outbreak in South Africa which is best explained by bloodborne transmission during health care. The second smoking barrel is the subsequent silence by public health and HIV/AIDS experts and officials about the likelihood that transmission during health care procedures caused the outbreak.

Keywords: Africa, HIV, unsafe healthcare, public health
