Transcript of AIDS
Aids is a sexually transmitted disease that destroys your immune system and makes you prone to deadly diseases and there is no cure for it. We believe the transmission of aids can come to a stop if we practice safe sex and by better sexual education.
Transmission of Aids
Aids is very contagious .
Mainly passed on through sexual contact
Aids can also be passed on through bodily fluids.
It be passed on from mother to child through breast feeding and birth
Choose less risky sexual behaviors(ex. Oral is less risky than vaginal which are both less risky than anal)
Use condoms consistently and correctly.
Reduce the number of people you have sex with.
What are Aids/HIV
When used correctly, condoms can help prevent HIV and other STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases). A male condom is a thin sheath worn over a man’s erect penis to keep seminal fluid (Sperm) or pre-seminal fluid (Pre Ejaculation) from entering his partner’s body during oral, anal, or vaginal sex.
Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome
HIV is a lot like other viruses, including those that cause the "flu" or the common cold. But there is an important difference – over time, your immune system can clear most viruses out of your body. That isn't the case with HIV – the human immune system can't seem to get rid of it. That means that once you have HIV, you have it for life.
AIDS is the final stage of HIV infection, and not everyone who has HIV advances to this stage. People at this stage of HIV disease have badly damaged immune systems, which put them at risk for opportunistic infections.
History of AIDS in US
Scientist believe that humans first got AIDS from monkeys
although they aren't completely positive, they believe that the disease was passed on from man hunting the monkey and eating the meat and/or getting monkey blood in their system
history of HIV and AIDS in the USA began in 1981
U.S. recognized there was a new rare illness amongst a small number of gay men
the first recognized victims of this disease were 5 gay men in LA had a rare lung infection and other unusual infections along with the cancer as well
This indicated that their immune systems weren't functioning
in 1999 AIDS was labeled the number 1 killer in Africa and number 4 killer worldwide
