The Venezuelan Academy of Medicine gave the Supreme Tribunal of Justice a list of medical professionals who are "highly qualified" to perform a medical evaluation of President Hugo Chávez, who has been in Cuba for the last 25 days after undergoing his fourth surgery for cancer.

In a letter, the Venezuelan physicians argued that the information provided by official spokesmen "lacks the required medical professional accuracy to be reliable, complete, precise and qualified." In their view, such situation has resulted in "anxiety, restlessness and uncertainty in Venezuelan society."

"We are only six days ahead of the end of Hugo Chavez's presidential term and the beginning of a new period. Nobody knows whether he is fully fit to take power and perform his duties. For these reasons and in order to provide the assistance and experience of the institutions we represent, and should it be necessary to enforce the provisions and regulations of Article 233 of the Constitution, which set forth the declaration of the complete absence of the President due to sickness and the appointment of a medical board, we offer the Supreme Tribunal of Justice a list of Venezuelan medical professionals, who are highly qualified experts in the fields related to the complex conditions of the President of the Republic," read the letter.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
