These cancers include Kaposi's sarcoma, cervical cancer, and lymphomas. Although each of these cancers are treatable, AIDS patients suffer severe cases of these cancers because of their weakened immune system. It is often difficult to determine if a person will make it through a particular illness or not. In most cases, people do not die from AIDS but from complications from illnesses that define AIDS. When a person is diagnosed with having AIDS, their estimated survival time is 2-3 years.
To achieve this goal, we have 2 options, development of vaccine and treating all HIV patients with the concept of treatment for prevention. Vaccine development is the best but we still not get perfect vaccine although we are trying for many years. So people decide to develop second option which is more realistic at this moment because of available tool, antiretroviral therapy (ART). And we can see from UNAIDS report that new infection and death reduce gradually since development of ART in 2002. It did happen even without full coverage of ART to all HIV... ... middle of paper ... ...patient due to lack of systematic recording system and selling the drugs - Losing jobs due to HIV and sell ART half dose for buying food and take once per day instead of twice - ART taking patients moving to the other places where no ART clinic there.
When this happens, the person now has AIDS. Some people live for several years once they have AIDS, but it is always fatal. HIV is diagnosed with a blood test known as an HIV antibody test or HIV test. If the test shows that HIV is present, the person is referred to as HIV positive. It may take up to 6 months after contact to show up.
According to the Office of AIDS research, AIDS, or Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome is a serious illness that originates as HIV. HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. AIDS can take anywhere between seven and ten years to develop after being diagnosed with HIV. The AIDS virus damages the immune system, the part of the body that fights off infection. Over year AIDS will cause that immune system to become very weak.
$1.1 billion is spent annually on unnecessary adult upper respiratory infection antibiotic prescriptions. When antibiotics fail to work, the consequences are longer-lasting illnesses, more doctor visits or extended hospital stays, and the need for more expensive and toxic medications. Some resistant infections can even cause death .The judicious prescription of antibiotics has become a central focus of professional and public health measures to combat the spread of resistant organisms.  Many studies conducted about the antibiotic uses which discuss many views at different levels. Study done in parent of children with URTI as the Antib... ... middle of paper ... ... 83.7% of patients were found to be forthcoming towards being wise-users of antibiotics in the future.
Hospitals are already known to have a depressing effect on patients, then added onto that are patients who are suffering from acute or terminal illnesses. Their pain in many ways, gets passed on to the nurses who have gotten close with them through the care, with the nurses then trying to reciprocate with comfort and support. Hospitals were developed from religion, emerging from the idea of helping those in need. Through time, hospitals modernized into what is seen today, but specialty areas have still kept the purpose for an improved quality of life then for a cure. These include hospice and palliative care facilities, which are known to support a positive outlook of life during difficult times.
PROBLEM DEVELOPMENT For over thirty years HIV and AIDS have presented historic challenges to the human nature, especially to our planet’s public health, scientific and medical communities. It is estimated that just in the United States between 900.000 and 950.000 persons are living with HIV and about one forth of those infected have not yet been diagnosed and are unaware of their infection. The number of people with AIDS is increasing as effective new drug therapies keep HIV-infected persons healthy longer and dramatically reduce the death rates. However in spite of extremely beneficial advances in the field of HIV-AIDS treatment in recent years the epidemic is far from being over. The Center for Disease Control in the United States has estimated that about 40.000 people become infected every year and most of these are young persons under the age of 25.
Nine years. It took nearly a decade, and more than two hundred thousand Americans’ deaths until a brave soul spoke up to encourage people to speak up about AIDS. “A Whisper of AIDS” was written to encourage people to “lift the shroud of silence which has been draped over the issue of HIV/AIDS” (Fisher). The effectiveness of this speech lies in its addressing of a problem that has affected many people not only in the 1980s, more than thirty years ago, but has continued to even in the 21st century, and through its use of many rhetorical devices it makes for a convincing and heart wrenching speech. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
This may come from blood transfusions, organ transplants, tattooing and body piercing, but the most common route is through needles shared from illegal drug abuse. Most people who are infected do not know they have the disease until they develop liver damage that results in chronic liver disease around two decades after they have been infected. Acute symptoms, if any, manifest as flu-like symptoms, which may include fatigue, poor appetite, fever, nausea, muscle pains, joint pains, and yellowing of the eyes and skin. For most infected people, symptoms appear only when liver damage has occurred and is discovered through a blood test. Early treatment of hepatitic C is necessary to avoid complications from chronic hepatitis C. About a quarter of patients eventually develop serious liver disease such as cirrhosis and liver cancer after several years, for which there is no cure.
The best way to prevent sudden relapse is to understand warning signs of addiction and factors that commonly lead to relapse. Factors vary for each person and situation, but relapse causes include emotional triggers, social situations and physical changes, (Recovery.org). In 2010, the National Institute on Drug Abuse found that over 22.5 million Americans ages 12 or over had abused drugs within one month prior to the date of the survey. Many of the centers offer differing approaches to the recovery process, from those that highlight the spiritual nature of recovery to more secular approaches that focus on the medical aspect of dealing with an addiction.
