Sample text

The common misconception that HIV/AIDS was exclusively a gay men’s disease began with the identification of the disease in 1981. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) published an early warning about a new phenomenon found among patients at several hospitals, including Mount Sinai in New York City (Centers for Disease Control 1981). The cases identified by the CDC were all men, mostly with access to good medical care. The CDC were alerted by doctors concerned about the strange disease that was killing young middle-class men who could, in most circumstances, expect to be extremely healthy (Shilts 1987).

In some instances, poor countries have had to choose one or the other. At Doha, after the 9/11/2001 attack on the World Trade Center in New York heightened fears of terrorism, an emergency demand for vaccinations and medications on the part of Western nations led the WTO to negotiate with respect to pharmaceutical patents while refusing to discuss agricultural subsidies (Bello 2001, 2002). In contrast, in October 2004, India was forced to abide by WTO patent regulations in exchange for agricultural trade agreements.

One of the major issues that has emerged on the “anti-global” stage has been the question of fair trade and agricultural subsidies. A central controversy concerns how much farmers in poor countries are paid for their produce. Agricultural tariffs set by wealthy Western governments combined with the subsidizing of Western agriculture, in general, force down the prices for farmers in poorer countries (Kaufman 2005; White House 2005). However, with respect to AIDS, the anti-global protests have focused on the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS).
