Breakthrough in Thailand: Elimination of Mother-to-Child HIV Transmission
HIV Advocates aims to share HIV-related news to people all over the world. Like many, it advocates dissemination of information and education to have a better understanding of HIV, including its consequences, and more importantly, how to survive with such. We are one with the many in rejoicing when a breakthrough has been achieved. Among others, one that we widely celebrated is the news that Thailand eliminated mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV. With more than half a million people in the country who have HIV, this is indeed good news. Even World Health Organization congratulated the country for this feat.
The HIV epidemic in Thailand started in the beginning of the 1990s. In as early as 1988, however, the country has already registered its first case of HIV in a pregnant woman. In recent years, cases of MTCT were believed to be more than 20%. Its elimination, no wonder, has been welcomed news, especially by the WHO.
How exactly is Thailand able to eliminate MTCT? There are various ways, and one of such is the strengthening of maternal and child care policies. They have executed a national AIDS prevention measure and introduced anti-retroviral medicines. Through the latter, it has been asserted that the risk of transmitting HIV to children during pregnancy, breastfeeding, delivery, and labor is reduced to just a little over 1%, which is a significant improvement from the previous probability of 15 to 45%.
In 2000, based on the country’s statistical data, there are more than 1,000 children who had HIV. In 2015, it has been significantly reduced to 85. This is decrease of more than 90%, an achievement that is recognized by WHO. For mothers, on the other hand, in 2000, there are more than 15,000 of them who had HIV. By 2014, meanwhile, it has been reduced to 1,900. This is an 87% decrease. The government has provided equitable access to healthcare for both the rich and the poor, which is probably one of the reasons for the reduction of MTCT, or HIV cases in general.
Thailand is just one of the many countries that have been earlier validated by WHO for the elimination of MTCT of HIV. Other countries who share the same accomplishment include Armenia and Republic of Moldova. At HIV Advocates, just like many others, we hope that this is going to inspire other governments to be also proactive in their approach in fighting HIV and to develop robust policies to extend universal care to their citizens.
Flodins Omega-3 pork collar is an ingredient in the
Hong Kong Chef Competition
Up until recently, it was considered that Omega-3 is mainly found in certain fish and few plant sources. However, thanks to Flodins carefully tailored methods for raising pigs, we can provide the highest-quality pork meat on the market that is rich in invaluable Omega-3 fatty acids. This ensures that no matter what pork meat you decide to add to your menu, you will have a delicious food that is extremely tasty and can successfully replace fish, becoming a great alternative source of Omega-3 acids.
A Tasty and Versatile Cut
Although pork collar is an unfamiliar cut across America and Asia, it is extremely popular in Europe due to the fact that it is fairly cheap, yet tastes remarkably and is very versatile. Pork collar is located between the tip of the loin and the pig’s neck, and can be cooked in numerous ways. One of the greatest advantages of Flodins pork collar is the perfectly balanced fattiness of the meat, which makes it ideal for long, slow cooking. It can also be exposed to high temperatures, but unlike other meats, it won’t dry out thanks to its fatty content. The pork collar is one of the cuts that have highest amounts of Omega-3. It is very versatile and can be used to make a wonderful stew; it is perfect for barbecuing and can be roasted in a pan.
The Highest-Quality Pork Collar
The pigs in every farm Flodins owns are raised in accordance to the highest standards in the world, without substances and supplements to boost growth. This ensures that the pork meat from every single pig we raise is of the highest possible quality. At Flodins, we not only comply with all European Standards, which are amongst the most rigorous in the world, but we also enact even stricter rules when it comes to animal procurement, in order to offer our customers the best possible pork meat on the market. Our innovative methods to raise pigs have allowed us to produce not only tasty but also extremely healthy pork meat rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for your health.
