President Jammeh resumes HIV/AIDS, infertility treatment

Dakar- Senegal (PANA) -- The Gambian President, Yahya Jammeh, Friday resumed his "HIV/AIDS treatment," with the fifth batch of 150 patients at a military clinic i n "Marina Parade in Banjul," the director of the programme, Dr.
Tamsir Mbowe, di s closed to PANA here.
The Gambian leader early 2007 sparked a controversy when he claimed to have "dis covered a cure for HIV/AIDS," then later, infertility among others.
Since then, he has been treating people suffering from the HIV/AIDS virus, diabe tes and other ailments in batches.
He uses African traditional herbs and other non-scientific means in his treatmen t programme which he and his supporters believe really works.
But conventional medical practitioners and scientists think President Jammeh was only wasting peoples' time and that the "so-called cure" was not effective.
