There has been increasing concern over the transmission of drug-resistant virus and multi-drug resistant HIV in the past year. People infected with multi-drug resistant HIV are unlikely to benefit from most, if not all, of the available anti-HIV therapies.

These observations, however, should serve as a reminder of the importance of safer sex.
