High ranking officers from several Latin American governments wished Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez getting well soon after his fourth surgery due to a cancer in the pelvic area. In the meantime, in Venezuela, additional official news was awaited as to his health condition. Beginning on Tuesday, the Venezuelan government released a couple of communiqués, as cited by news agencies.

In Montevideo, Uruguay's President José "Pepe" Mujica asked "some friends" to host a mass for anyone wanting to pray for the health of the Venezuelan Head of State, DPA reported.

The Panamanian government also wished President Chávez "prompt recovery and happy return" to his country of origin, Efe quoted.

For his part, Ecuadorian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Integration Ricardo Patiño tweeted: "I wish you a prompt, successful recovery, my friend."

Bolivia's Lower House endorsed a resolution to voice solidarity with the Venezuelan people and best wishes for the president's quick recovery.

Chávez underwent surgery on Tuesday in Cuba, for the fourth time in a year and a half because of cancer.

Living with HIV/AIDS (I)

Let us start by looking at what appears to be a discrepancy in figures. According to official statistics, the number of Venezuelans contracting HIV/AIDS every year amounts to 11,699; and as per Ministry of Health figures 43,805 people receive free antiretroviral medications.  But Jhonatan Rodríguez, the president of ONG StopVIH, claims that these figures date back to March 2012, and that they are quoted as current figures.
