Cuban Scientists have identified a new strain of HIV. Research indicates that this strain develops much faster into full blown AIDS than previous strains of the Virus.

Though funding for HIV has reduced globally, the Ministry of Health, Wellness, Human Services and Gender Relations has continued to keep the citizenry informed of the developments in HIV/AIDS.

Dr. Alisha Eugene, Senior Medical Officer for Infectious Diseases explained the difference between this new strain of HIV and previous strains.

The Ministry of Health conducts regular island wide HIV screening an implores individuals to do know their HIV status by doing regular testing. She says individuals infected with the new strain must be managed differently.

Health officials are encouraging everyone whether HIV negative or Positive to use condoms, to abstain, and stay faithful to one partner.
