Thanks to the efforts made for research , and treatments have been made to control the virus. Most importantly, the HIV/AIDS virus cannot replicate violently in the immune system because of these treatments. I think humans hold the real key to cure, if they would think about there actions before they do them, then we can save a lot more lives from the virus and stop the spread of it. Sharing needles with infected individual is a way of acquiring the disease. If we do this the percentage of people with HIV/AIDS will decrease significantly.
It can be treated that will extend the duration of the HIV affected person, but cannot be cured. In the year 2013, UNAIDS has presented a report that shows 35.7 million adults and 2.1 million children are surviving with HIV. Third world countries become victims of this deadly disease due to ignorance, lack education, poverty, cultural practices, and status of women. Shockingly, developing countries have the 95 percent of HIV infected population. This widespread health issue affects especially women due to their status in the many third world countries.
With its cause and method of spreading now understood, HIV/AIDS is a preventable disease. Yet it remains a major health threat in many parts of the world. In addition to disrupting the lives of its millions of victims, AIDS has upset the lives of whole families, communities, and entire countries. The epidemic brought confusion to politics and governments and quickly became both a national and a worldwide problem. Although the history of AIDS is filled with illness, pain, loss, and death, it is also filled with caring, determination, and hard work.
1.1 INTRODUCTION There is no doubt that the HIV and AIDS epidemic has had a devastating influence on Africa, especially in my community of Qumbu. The AIDS epidemic has killed more lives than the sum total of all wars, famines and floods, and the ravages of deadly diseases as Malaria. It is destroying families in my community, overwhelming and depleting health care services. The AIDS epidemic influence in my community is significant ways should developed to reduce its effect. (Abdool Karim and Abdool Karim 2010) 1.2 HIV AND AIDS IN MY COMMUNITY A few years ago, a lot would have not estimated the current state of the HIV and AIDS pandemic in society.
HIV is a very serious virus that slowly but surely attacks the immune system. HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It is one of the most severe illnesses and leading causes of death in the United States. Once a person becomes infected with this virus, it becomes quite difficult for the body to fight off any diseases or any other types of illnesses. Furthermore, when HIV is very advanced, that’s when it leads to AIDS.
Viruses have become of great concern all across the world in the last few decades. The most common and the most talked about killer virus is AIDS, a virus that starts out as HIV and then proceeds to develop into a immune breaker that ultimately kills its human host. So far, there is no cure for AIDS, and most unfortunately the numbers of deaths from AIDS only continues to grow. However, another virus has gained much public and national attention. That virus is called Ebola.
Communicable diseases doesn’t only affect a single country, it can also become pandemic. First and foremost, communicable diseases or infectious diseases have been a major issue around the globe. HIV/AIDS (Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), and Swine Influenza (H1N1) are some of the communicable diseases that affected the world recently. Among these communicable diseases, HIV/AIDS is seen as the greatest threat that endangers everyone around the globe. According to WHO (World Health Organization), there has been a 50% increase in HIV infected people since 2004.
Introduction Since the beginning of time, many of the plagues that we have faced have been global and catastrophic in nature- the Bubonic Plague for example decimated nearly 1/5 of the world population in the Middle Ages. In modern times, the later decades of the 20th century has seen a pandemic that is wrecking just as much havoc on the globe- Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and one in particular- HIV and AIDs. The focus of this paper will explore past interventions using social marketing and Social Network Theory as their foundation to encourage condom usage to prevent the spread of STDs. Public Health Concern In modern times, STDs (such as HIV and AIDs) have wrecked such havoc upon the globe with more than 35.3 million being affected in 2012 (UNAIDS, 2013). Sub-Saharan Africa has become most affected by this disease, with little knowledge of prevention, means of transmission, and conflicts that stems progress of these countries.
Also you get terrible flu to the point of death. Many don't understand why HIV cause Aids but i'm sure they will find the answer. HIV lives and reproduces in blood and other body fluids. Aids is a worldwide disease, infact its the worlds’ leading infectious killer. 33.4 million people are currently suffering from Ai... ... middle of paper ... ...mptoms.
This pandemic is caused by a number of factors such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, lack of health care, lack of knowledge, and new drug resistant strains. Globally, TB is second only to HIV/AIDS as a cause of illness and death of adults, accounting for nearly nine million cases of active disease and two million deaths every year (WHO declares TB an emergency in Africa Para 4). Microscopic droplets spread TB when an infected person talks, coughs, laughs, sneezes, or sings. It usually takes prolonged exposure with an infected person to become infected. In the United States, tuberculosis, compared to the rest of the world, is not as widespread.
