Transcript of hiv/aids

Hiv/aids a disease of the immune system characterized by increased susceptibility to opportunistic infections, as pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and candidiasis, to certain cancers, as Kaposi's sarcoma, and to neurological disorders: caused by a retrovirus and transmitted chiefly through blood or blood products that enter the body's bloodstream, esp. by sexual contact or contaminated hypodermic needles How many does it effect An estimated 5.3 million Since the epidemic began, an estimated 21.8 million people have died of AIDS (17.5 million adults and 4.3 million children under 15). What parts of africa does it affect? Sub-Saharan Africa is more heavily affected by HIV and AIDS than any other region of the world. An estimated 22.4 million people are living with HIV in the region - around two thirds of the global total. In 2008 around 1.4 million people died from AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa and 1.9 million people became infected with HIV. Since the beginning of the epidemic more than 14 million children have lost one or both parents to AIDS. UNAIDS estimates for 2008 (which are latest figures available) there were roughly:

•33.4 million living with HIV
•2.7 million new infections of HIV
•2 million deaths from AIDS
•Approximately 7 out of 10 deaths for 2008 were in Sub-Saharan Africa, a region that also has over two-thirds of adult HIV cases and over 90% of new HIV infections amongst children what countries are affected the most? Africa,More than 36 million people worldwide are living with HIV/AIDS, more than two thirds of them in sub-Saharan Africa. At least 2 million infected adults live in each of five countries: Ethiopia, India, Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. In five African countries -- Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe -- at least one in five adults has HIV or AIDS.



Eight African countries will have lost at least 17 years of life expectancy to the AIDS epidemic by 2000-2005,namely, Botswana, Kenya, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. In Botswana, life expectancy in 1995-2000 is already 23 years less than it would have been if there had been no AIDS-related mortality, and the shortfall will be 34 years by 2000-2005. Outside



Africa, AIDS deaths will decrease life expectancy by at least three years in the Bahamas, Cambodia, Dominican Republic, Guyana, Haiti and Myanmar by 2000-2005.



Most of the deaths caused by AIDS occur to people in younger age groups; the loss of these young lives disproportionately affects productivity and economic growth and the social fabric of family and society. About 310,000 persons died in 1999 of AIDS in India. Ethiopia and Nigeria also each had at least a quarter of a million AIDS deaths. AIDS caused more deaths in India than in any other country.



Some 13 million children have been orphaned because their parents died of AIDS. Three countries Ethiopia, Nigeria and Uganda each have more than 900,000 AIDS orphans. The number of AIDS orphans will continue to grow in countries where the epidemic is still gathering momentum. Four other countries India, Kenya, United Republic of Tanzania and Zimbabwe all have at least half a million orphans due to the AIDS epidemic.
