hello friends, it is alarming situation as scientists in washington have said that malaria helps spread AIDS. They say that HIV is most easily spread when patients have high virus levels in their blood. A bout of malaria causes a sevenfold increase in those levels. They say that Malaria is fueling the spread of AIDS in Africa by boosting the HIV in people's bodies for weeks ata time , says a study that pins down the deadly interplay between the dual scourges. It is a vicious cycle as people weakened by HIV are in turn more vulnerable to malaria. I think We really need to be much more serious about malaria at the same time we're serious about what we do about HIV.

when mosquito sucks blood from AIDS person, within some span of time, if it bites another person like entering (hiv)blood into the blood of healthy person , i think AIDS can results in Positive. if and only if time span is greater than 5 seconds. i think

Mosquitoes can NOT spread HIV from one person to another. This has been proven in several good clinical studies.

That's very interesting to hear, because I myself don't know much about malaria. Maybe I need to educate myself more huh? Or just maybe you can educate me.

Well, well, well if this is true than i think Aids going to spread like wild fire and more interestingly should have spread till now and specially in equitorial countries where malaria is a epidemic (India, Africa, Brazil, Mexico,Indonesia,Thailand,SL,Myanmar, etc. But i do not think. Remember AIDS virus destroys ur Immune System and youe immune system is so weak that u can even die due a simple viral fever or Tubercolosis(TB), so nothing to do with Malaria

I would have to agree with you and we need to stop putting silly religious teachings ahead of the well being of the people who are fighting these diseases
