Farrakhan vows to fight AIDS in Zimbabwe

HARARE (FinalCall.com)—
The Nation of Islam may be able to render assistance to the people of Zimbabwe in their fight to control the devastating AIDS crisis, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan told President Robert Mugabe and Dr. David Parirenyatwa, deputy minister of Health and Child Welfare during meetings here July 13.

Min. Farrakhan pledged to send a medical team back to this country, which suffers more than 5,000 deaths per week from the plague. The AIDS pandemic is ravaging the entire African continent, and especially in the southern and eastern regions.

"We have developed what we think is a successful remedy for AIDS that is low-cost," the Muslim leader told reporters after a two-hour meeting with President Mugabe. "We want to come back during this period where the President has declared a national emergency."

Incidents of HIV/AIDS need to be properly diagnosed so that adequate treatments can be prescribed, Min. Farrakhan’s Peace Mission physician Dr. Gregory Muhammad told The Final Call. "The people of Zimbabwe are losing the most viable segment of their population—young adults. Children, many of whom are themselves born HIV positive, are being made orphans.

"This is totally unacceptable. We cannot push this to the back burner. The world needs to know about this pandemic, which is very tragic for the nation and for the world as a whole," he continued.

Nation of Islam Minister of Health Dr. Abdul Alim Muhammad has met with Dr. Davy Koech, of Kenya, who has produced a breakthrough treatment using Alpha-Interferon as a possible treatment for AIDS, according to the Muslim leader.

"We are using it in the United States with much success," Min. Farrakhan said, "and we believe it can be manufactured or produced on the continent at low cost so that we don’t have to waste the wealth of Africa. Diamonds traded for medicine? No. We can do better than that."

The Alpha-Interferon treatment results in an improvement in the "T-cell count" in the blood of those who are affected with the disease, according to Min. Farrakhan.
