  • Here’s What We Actually Know About The Pill That Prevents HIV

    On Thursday, President Obama signed an executive order laying out the national HIV/AIDS strategy for the next five years. The plan is fairly similar to the old strategy, with one big exception: It focuses on a pill that can prevent people from becoming infected with HIV. The once-a-day pill, Truvada — used to prevent HIV in what’s known as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) — was approved by the FDA in 2012. When taken every day, studies show, Truvada reduces the likelihood of contracting HIV by 92%.

  • Murder mystery deepens

    The 39-year-old Los Angeles woman was found dead in a room at a luxury Cape Town hotel on Wednesday with faeces on her head and a curling iron next to her body. Diego Dougherty Novella, a 41-year-old Guatemalan arrested in connection with the murder and being held at Pollsmoor prison, appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Friday. Police sources close to the investigation said they were trying to establish the true identity of the man known as Novella because the passport found on the murder scene - a room at the exclusive Camps Bay Retreat boutique hotel - does not contain a South African port-of-entry stamp. In several overseas publications, Novella, who has links to Mexico and Italy, is also referred to as Diego Guarte, who is barred from entering the US for reasons that are still unclear.

It is worsened by the conditions prevailing in my institution of learning, Rhodes University. Two years ago I joined the multitudes of black students across South Africa who are on the receiving end of financial exclusions. While tertiary institutions have seen a significant growth in student numbers and historically white universities a dramatic shift in demographics (black students account for 68 percent of university enrolments), the number of students who successfully complete their courses is alarmingly low.
