Senegalese Mr Diagne is everywhere, and I have written about him before, click here. He is an erudite, well-spoken, well-educated professional from Senegal with medical and science training who Gilead had the sense to hire to talk to African communities about health. He was in San Francisco at the early stages of the epidemic and was in a lab studying the effects of drugs on HIV cells. This was before the virus had been isolated and characterized. He knows everything there is to know about HIV infection, progression of the disease, prevention and treatment, and he knows about the other diseases we all have to watch out for that are also transmitted by blood and by intimate relations.

The African communities are in general extremely receptive of his message, clearly some in every audience are more interested in the food he brings with him, but I have always seen some members of every audience getting what he is saying. He tells me he has had a great success rate in African community members being tested and treated for HIV infection that they did not know they had before listening to him.

He came out on Saturday night to a celebration of Senegal that was widely advertised as a free event put on by the ladies of Senegal, in celebration of what they had achieved. He brought with him a representative of Gilead, Mr Frank Ratchford and a physician Dr Xiaoli Ma and her husband, who is a cancer researcher at Fox Chase. Dr Ma was there to talk about the need for vaccination and testing for hepatitis B: you get hepatitis B, you increase astronomically your chance of getting liver cancer and dying before your time. For picture of Dr Ma giving her talk, click here.

I saw Malians, Haitians, the Ethiopian contingent pictures above, African Americans. When I left after the presentation on HIV/AIDS and hepatitis B, I saw that people were still arriving. Congratulations Senegal for wanting to celebrate, and being able to! For constantly updated news of Senegal, click here. For constantly updated news of Ethiopia, click here.
