    The national institute of health, a government body, led the taxpayer funded research that developed PrEP, an HIV prevention drug, and Remdesivire, an anti-viral that shows early promise in fighting Covid.  Gilead Sciences, a massive pharmaceutical company, enjoys government sanctioned exclusive patent protection on both of those drugs. 

    The CDC estimates over 1.1. million Americans need PrEP and can’t get it because Gilled charges $2400/month when it costs less than $6/month to make. Gillead made 3 billion dollars in profit off PrEP in 2018.

    Gilead is going to charge $3200 for Redesivire, even for people with private insurance. If remdesivir were sold at the cost of production, it would cost $10, not $3,120.

    This is Gilead’s business model: take a drug developed largely with taxpayer funds, get an exclusive patent on production from the US government, then charge obscene amounts of money for it. That creates a viral loaded class of people who need the drug, the majority of which are black and brown.

    Our federal government could solve both these problems tomorrow. Legally, they could be be co-owners of the patents for both drugs and could execute what’s called “March in orders” and seize the patents. They could immediately allow for generic manufacturing of both drugs, increasing the accessibility of the treatment and driving down the price. But the government does nothing. On a global scale, accessible PrEP, combined with the right public policies could end HIV, just like we ended Polio. But we don’t. 

    We don’t.

    That’s why every time a young person asks me, “Why don’t we have a cure for AIDS?” I think of Jeff McConnell, the HIV positive sociologist who died in 2014 and his question to his friend, Dr. Grant, “If we discovered a way to end the HIV epidemic, would we?” I think of him because the answer, so far, is no.

    EP 53 - What are nipples for? - Level One

    EP 53 - What are nipples for? - Level One

    Welcome back to Six Minute Sex Ed, the podcast that helps people talk about sex, relationships, and growing up. Created and hosted by Sex Education Teacher Kim Cavill. Find her at www.teaandintimacy.com - https://twitter.com/sexposparenting - https://www.instagram.com/sixminutesexed/

    This week’s episode is level one, making it perfect for listeners of any age. Today, we’re going to answer the question, “Why do people have nipples?”

    Resources for adults:

    https://www.livescience.com/32467-why-do-men-have-nipples.html


    What are nipples?

    Nipples are small bits of flesh that stick out from the breast tissue, which is found on the chest in humans. Typically, most humans have two nipples, though 1 in 18 people have more than two. Nipples aren’t all the same, either. Nipples can be flat, inverted, protruding, multiple, or divided.

    Who has nipples?
    All human beings have nipples because of the way human beings develop. Think of it like this: we all start out as gender-neutral and 6 - 7 weeks into our development, when we’re about the size of a sweet pea, for some of us, something called a Y chromosome creates changes that make testicles develop and others experience changes that make breast development different.

    Why do people have nipples?
    Nipples do a few different things. One of the most important things they do is feeding breastmilk to babies. When babies are first born, they don’t have the teeth to eat pizza or broccoli like you do. They need breastmilk or formula in order to survive until they are big enough to eat other foods. Special glands called lobules inside breasts produce breastmilk. Those lobules connect to ducts, or tiny little tubes which move the milk from the glad to the nipple, where the breastmilk comes out. Babies can suckle the breastmilk out and so can machines called breast pumps.

    How to people take care of their nipples?
    Nipples are sensitive, so it’s important to be gentle with them. They can be washed with soap and water, just like other body parts, and it’s important for adults to gently feel their breasts and nipples once a month to look out for any changes in the way they look for feel because those changes can be a sign to see the doctor and get a checkup.
