5/18/2009 M ALARIA   AND  HIV  COINFECTION   IN   SUB - S AHARAN  A FRICA A   SPATIAL   STATISTICALAPPROACH CEEB 2009 Symposium From his introduction until the end of his presentation Diego Cuadros-Rubio  had a very convincing theory.  His theory touched upon one of today’s major  health threats and that is the HIV virus.   The HIV virus to date has not be  recorded as aerobic or transmitted as other viruses that are highly contagious  like tuberculosis which is aerobic.  Instead, HIV has been traced to exchange  of bodily fluids, either that be blood, ((CDC), 1999) tears, vaginal fluids,  semen, breast milk and many more.  HIV is unable to survive outside of its  host thus, the percentage of HIV in the fluids that were examined actually  correlate how high the risk of transmission is based on recent studies.  What  Diego Cuadros-Rubio, is examining is the direct relationship between malaria  and HIV successfully, and from his statistical data has strong grounds to  believe that a person infected with malaria has higher probability of  transmitting HIV to another or if someone is infected with malaria will most  likely be more susceptible to contacting HIV.   The statistical data presented  is significant enough to focus more research on these diseases and how they  either “cooperate” or if they actually facilitate the transmission or increased  probability of contracting the HIV virus.   One factor and variable taken into
