HIV “Cure” Discovered in Malawi

A masters degree student at Malawi’s only College of Medicine which is under the University of Malawi claims her herb completely cures HIV – strangely the defacto minister of HIV affairs in the central African nation seems to agree – is thi IT?

Gambia’s President Yahya Jammeh, Mchape and a thousand other traditional doctors have claimed that they can cure HIV but they ended up drawing public wrath, the story of one woman however is likely to be a big topic on the tables of those who say HIV has no cure because her herb can actually make HIV disappear.

Gloria Jeremiah has not advertised her herb, she has tried to engage government to have the drug certified so that Malawians with HIV can get cured but for some reasons nothing has happened since 2009 when the authorities were approached about this herb. The herb was discovered in 2007 and she verified it in 2008.


“Preliminary analysis was done at Chancellor College’s Chemistry department with the consent of the Office of the President and Cabinet, Nutrition, HIV and AIDS .The herb was also given to Malawi Pharmacy, Medicines and Poisons Board for analysis. Preliminary results found three major moieties (parts or functional groups of a molecule) in the powder which need to be further identified,” said Jeremiah in an interview.

Jeremiah said things got tricky when some authorities demanded that she reveal the name of the tree from which she gets the powder so that it can be fully analyzed before it can get certified and patented.

Permanent Secretary on HIV and AIDS in the Office of President and Cabinet Dr Mary Shawa admitted taking the medicine to the Poisons Board and said it is necessary for the tree to be made known to government before it can be certified.

“When such discoveries are made they have to go through several stages; we need to name it as a country, the next stage is to subject it to testing and processes before we can send it to World Health Organization which is the only body that can certify it,” said Shawa.

Shawa said that the drug is actually one of the priorities on her desk and that she actually called Jeremiah to talk about the issue, she however said the deal hit rock bottom when it came to the legal part where Jeremiah insisted on patenting first before the tree could be revealed.

“Once the name of the tree is revealed, we could lose our intellectual rights and it’s why we insist on patenting first before anything like revealing the tree can happen,” said Jeremiah

    how true is this cause its ony on your blog, spread the news and let the woman be allowed to express her views and be given a patent, why is it that we africans we do not want our friends to discover something or be the first to do something. if it was in a white man\’s country that woman would have had her products patented already and later sent to WHO but for us africans we want to site on our friends success.if the thing as worked then why subject the lady in reviewing her source, why not just give her the patent and then later get the name of the tree

    If it is true that the a claimed herb works then this is very simple because its not the government which is sick its the people on the ground. So sample HIV patient with the help of the media ofcourse give the the herb and cross check there after. It will be the people publicing and people will start flocking for it. Who does nt want to be free from HIV? If you cant assess HIV pts for trials contact me and i cant assist and silence those who doubt and if it does nt work you will also be quite simple and straight forward

    People needs to healed so if the witness say it has work then let the Gov\’t allow the drug to be published cos some of us we have our beloved one who are suffering from HIV. I am from Uganda but from what i have above i go to Malawi for the life of my beloved one so Gov\’t of Malawi just help people to have another chance of life

    Jeremiah, You should NEVER NEVER give them the name of the tree. You have already given them a sample which they can subject to different chemical analysis (GC-HPLC, NMR, GC-MS) which can reveal the active ingredients in your concotion and the ‘whites’ may synthesise that in the lab. You may get leiterally nothing. There are lots patent which are obtained without undergoing such analysis. I can tell you now that some people have patented a drug for cancer without even undergoing such analysis. Hold on to YOUR LIFE and give it to those who have hiv. Evidence from hospa is necessary.

    Why posting her picture instead of her contacts? We want healing not the certification or whatever, just get a herbalist certification/lincence if there is anything like that then start selling your concoction.
