PUBLISH . . . AND LET PERISH? (USA)
On Aug 3 the NY Times reported that CDC has known for some 10 months that it had been grossly underestimating - by some 40% - the number of HIV-positive cases in US.

Meanwhile, it seems the considerably higher-than-expected prevalence has not caused CDC or other branches of federal Government to reconsider the irrational refusal to endorse - and fund - harm reduction measures proven to be effective in many countries throughout the world.
