Snake oil and other fabulous concoctions.

Persons suffering from AIDS and HIV have been abandoning their antiviral medication increasingly, turning to what amounts to snake oil and false promises. While there is no cure to HIV, the medication available for treating the disease is handed out freely in South Africa, one of the world's most AIDS infected region; this doesn't stop people's belief in magical cure though, some people have given up on the medical cure and have turned to a magical potion being handed out by a truck driver who says he received the recipe for it in a dream. Will their magical beans amount to a beanstalk, of course not and they will suffer heavily because of their stubborn choices and these false promises.
