HIV AIDS Awareness
In this modern year, so many different kinds of diseases. One is HIV disease. HIV is a non-discriminating disease. Anyone can get the disease, the biggest contributor to the disease is 39 percent of teenagers aged 13-29. The problem is important for us to see how to protect ourselves and HIV transmission.
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that weakens the immune system with cell diseases. HIV destroys T cells or CD4 cells that are an essential part of the immune system. Cannot fight disease and disease anymore. When this happens, HIV infection can lead to AIDS.
AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) is a complex disease with various complications and symptoms. AIDS is the final stage of HIV. When they are experiencing this stage, they are at high risk because they are badly damaged.
HIV can be found in certain human body fluids. HIV can infect if any fluid enters the body such as Blood, Semen (cum), Pre-semen Fluid, Breastfeeding, Vaginal Fluid, Rectal (mucus) mucus. Like body fluids and other waste products such as dirt, nasal secretions, saliva, sweat, air, eyes, air, art, or vomiting are not enough enough HIV to infect the body, unless mixed with blood in it and direct contact with people living with HIV.
There are very specific ways in which HIV is transmitted through the body. The first is with sexual contact. Transmission of HIV can be through anal, oral, or vaginal sex. During sexual contact, the virus enters the bloodstream through microscopic cracks or tears in the lining of the vagina, vulva, penis, rectum, or mouth. Both with breast milk. Infants can be infected with HIV through contact with mother’s body fluids including amniotic fluid and blood through pregnancy and childbirth. Infants can also get HIV from drinking infected milk. Here is the use of syringes. Needles or medications contaminated with HIV-infected blood can carry viruses directly into your body. The fourth was due to occupational exposure. Healthcare workers have the greatest form this type of HIV transmission because they can come in contact with blood according to or others through needles or wounds. The fifth was due to blood transfusions with moderate blood or organ transplants from infected donors.
Signs and symptoms
It is also important to recognize that some HIV symptoms are similar to common illnesses, such as flu or respiratory infections. Signs and symptoms commonly seen in the early stages of HIV include Fever, Cold Heat, Rash, Night sweats, Muscle aches, Sore throat, Fatigue, Swollen lymph nodes, ulcers in the mouth. Individuals infected can have viral up to 10 years sometimes longer without showing signs or symptoms.
HIV / AIDS prevention
Reducing sexual risk is one way to prevent HIV transmission. Have no sexual contact with others, you are 100 percent protected from contracting HIV through anal, oral, or vaginal sex which the main way of HIV transmission.
Practicing safe sex. Safer sex gets information about sexual health and healthy relationships. It also includes talking to your spouse about your interests, limitations and HIV status. Safe sex means you take extra precautions to protect yourself and your partner from sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV, and unplanned pregnancies. To reduce the risk of contracting HIV or other STIs, you should use a barrier method (e.g. male / female condoms or dental dam) whenever you have anal, oral or vaginal intercourse. Latex condoms are very effective against HIV. Sheep skin condoms will not protect you from HIV, because the virus is small enough to slip through the skin of sheep. You should always use a water-based lubricant when you use condoms for anal or vaginal sex to prevent condoms from breaking.
Being monogamous. Monogamy means being in a sexual relationship with just one person and you are just making love to each other. Having one sexual partner greatly reduces the risk of contracting HIV, assuming that both of you have not been infected with HIV.
Every December, IUP students honor World AIDS Day and HIV / AIDs AWAREness week, a campaign designed to offer support for those living with the disease, education for those who try to prevent the transmission of the disease, and memory for those who have lost combat they are HIV and / or AIDS.
