Financial assistance to state-owned oil company Pdvsa by the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) continues its upward trend. BCV's data shows that by the end of October, the financial institution's aid to the oil company increased by 79% over the last 12 months.

By October 26, the BCV had allocated USD 29 billion to Pdvsa, compared to only USD 16.2 billion during the same period in 2011.

During October this year, the financial aid amounted to USD 30.4 billion. Although by the end of that month the oil company had arranged to pay its liabilities, it only reduced its debts by USD 1.3 billion.

The BCV began providing financial assistance in the first half of 2010 when it received promissory notes that Pdvsa had issued to the National Treasury. Since then, financial assistance has not stopped.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
