HIV: In Ile de France, 10,000 people do not know how to get
In Ile de France, 10,000 people will live with the AIDS virus in knowledge. Apart from being deprived of effective treatment, they can spread the disease without their knowledge. That is why for the first time the Regional Health Agency (ARS) from Ile-de-France is launching from 11 to 15 June regional screening of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) week. In fact, Regional Coordination for HIV / AIDS has opened 30 free information, screening and diagnostic centers (CeGIDD) that are present in Ile-de-France (the list is accessible) on the ARS website).

Opioid Crisis: The Australian doctor is developing an implant to fill the gap
"I do not succeed with all, but I try."

Last but not least, if this is legally, this Naltrexone-based drug treatment created by O'Neill himself is not allowed in Australia. In a report released on June 6, Time in New York tells of the struggle of the doctor who is currently competing with a US company to present his device to the US. In particular, the implant in question supplies naltrexone, a drug that blocks the effects of opioids in patients' stomach for months, cutting them out of drug use. We will tell you more in our article.

Their conclusions are based on the analysis of 300 teleconsultations carried out in 2016 and 2018. 60% have led to the consultation with the allergist. To read more, click here.
