It may seem remarkable that, 23 years after the identification of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), there is still denial that the virus is the cause of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). This denial was highlighted on an international level in 2000, when South African president Thabo Mbeki convened a group of panelists to discuss the cause of AIDS, acknowledging that he remained unconvinced that HIV was the cause . His ideas were derived at least partly from material he found on the Internet . Though Mbeki agreed later that year to step back from the debate , he subsequently suggested a re-analysis of health spending with a decreased emphasis on HIV/AIDS .

Not surprising. I thought this was going to be about denial of HIV online, on the internet. We've had a "denier" here on babble in the past, even. Don't have time to search for the threads right now.
