Transcript of AIDS/HIV Impacts

By: Sabrina and Kiran
Impacts of AIDS and HIV
HIV positive people can live healthy without developing AIDS
Human Immunodeficiency Virus
HIV is the virus that causes AIDS
Weakens immune system
People vulnerable to sicknesses, diseases and infections
AIDS is advancement on HIV
HIV becomes AIDS when someone can no longer fight off opportunistic infections
Some opportunistic infections are:
Kaposi sarcoma
This can lead to rejection from friends or coworkers
HIV cannot be spread from casual contact
HIV is a non-curable virus
New technological research for finding a way to cure the virus
Can lead to more efficient and faster equipment for testing people and providing treatments
e.g. people in African or poorer countries can have cheaper equipment that still help infected patients
Loved ones can be lost for HIV positive people
Family and friends may ignore or not interact with you
Shunned by others at school or work in chance of contracting the virus
May discomfort the patient and make them feel worse
People that are not aware of HIV and its effects are at risk
This could lead to more transmittance
Many places affected by AIDS and HIV
Sub-Saharan Africa
If more people knew, it could save lives, but most aren't aware
Examples of countries
Sabrina: Blue arrows
Kiran: Purple arrows
About 4.8 million people in Asia are living with AIDS
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
Africa and Asia are most impacted
Less Impacted Areas of the World
Countries and organizations are working to cause a decline in HIV/AIDS cases
Vaccine: medicine that helps teach the immune system to recognize and fight a disease or sickness
For AIDS it is preventable vaccines - they do not provide a cure
Scientific research shows a HIV vaccine is possible
The first vaccine will have faults for the first round so it will take time
South Africa
Relationships are lost
United Nations has a fund where people can donate
Donations are used to treat patients and help pay for other fees
Doctors Fees
Many international organizations are working towards reducing the number of diseased
Governments are trying to raise awareness through initiatives
Personal actions can be taken
Europe, Caribbean, Oceania and North America
It is possible to reduce AIDS
People should try and increase awareness about AIDS
Friends or family members may die from AIDS
People may begin to think about you in a bad way
hold local events in their community to educate others and themselves about the causes and effects of HIV/AIDS
educate others and themselves about how to protect themselves from getting the virus
educate others and themselves on what to do if they or someone they know gets infected
AIDS/HIV have short term and long term effects
help organizations by donating or volunteering
help eliminate new infections amongst children and drug users
affected by factors such as:
poverty, economy, healthcare system, employment, climate, etc.
HIV Prevention Initiatives
these are developing nations that don't have a very good healthcare system and people are uneducated
unaware about diseases and don't live in a very clean environment
clean environment, good healthcare system, high employment rates and good incomes, well-educated people and rich countries
encouraging protected sex
help create equality between men and women
results in less sexual abuse
making laws to encourage people to be tested
demand for better healthcare system and number of healthcare workers
you may become an orphan
in a poor country, you may be used as a child soldier or for child labor
almost 60% of people with HIV are female
immune system begins to weaken
some one suffering from HIV/AIDS will probably need to take medications for the rest of their life
may cause other diseases like diabetes
