President Jammeh resumes HIV/AIDS, infertility treatment

The Gambian President, Yahya Jammeh, Friday resumed his “HIV/AIDS treatment,” with the fifth batch of 150 patients at a military clinic in “Marina Parade in Banjul,” said the director of the programme, Dr. Tamsir Mbowe. The Gambian leader early 2007 sparked a controversy when he claimed to have “discovered a cure for HIV/AIDS,” then later, infertility among others.
Since then, he has been treating people suffering from the HIV/AIDS virus, diabetes and other ailments in batches. He uses African traditional herbs and other non-scientific means in his treatmen t programme which he and his supporters believe really works. But conventional medical practitioners and scientists think President Jammeh was only wasting peoples’ time and that the “so-called cure” was not effective.
