TIME TO TALK ABOUT HIV/AIDS AND SPREAD AWARENESS

ASKING IRA

Ask IRA your questions about HIV/AIDS

at https://yes4me.net/IRA now.

Did you know there are 2.01 million people still in India who live with HIV, or that there are about 80,000 people who get infected every year? Not to mention the overall stigma & prejudice associated with the condition which marginalizes the infected and the lack of information that perpetuates all of these.  Bad news, indeed.

Good news, however, is that HIV is preventable, manageable and a lot of it is just to do with providing people the right information with sensitivity and tact at the right time!

 

WHAT IS HIV/AIDS

HIV, or Human Immunodeficiency is a virus that weakens one’s immune system by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection and

over a period of time, HIV can destroy so many of your T-cells or CD4 cells, that forms a key part of  the immune system.

H

AIDS, or Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, is a complex illness with a wide range of complications and symptoms. AIDS is the final stage of HIV. When individuals reach this stage, they are at higher risk for opportunistic infections due to their damaged immune system.

HOW DOES HIV/AIDS SPREAD

HIV is found in specific human body fluids. HIV can spread if any of the following fluids enter your body:

  • Blood
  • Semen
  • Pre-seminal fluid
  • Breast milk
  • Vaginal fluids
  • Rectal (anal) mucous

IS HIV/AIDS A CURABLE DISEASE

The answer is yes, HIV is curable.

We must talk about it openly. With modernisation and changing lifestyle, we are moving towards westernisation where with changing sexual preferences, we are often inviting the number of sexual diseases.

WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?

  1. Practicing safer sex:

Safer sex includes talking to your partner about your interest, boundaries, and HIV status.

  1. Getting tested:

One should know their health status. The test is must for both the partners. It is also imperative that you know your partners status prior to engaging in sexual activity

  1. Being monogamous:

Having one sexual partner greatly reduces the risk of contracting HIV, assuming neither of you is already infected with HIV.
