AIDS/HIV - Prevention And Transmission

While prevention efforts have managed to reduce the number of new HIV infections, each year, an estimated 56,300 Americans are newly infected with HIV. Efforts are underway by many agencies, primarily the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to fund prevention programs to educate people at highest risk, as well as the general public, about HIV/AIDS and preventing or reducing their risk. HIV is spread by sexual contact with an infected person, by sharing needles and/or syringes (primarily for drug injection) with someone who is infected, or, less commonly (and now very rarely in countries where blood is screened for HIV antibodies), through transfusions of infected blood or blood clotting factors. Babies born to HIV-infected women may become infected before or during birth or through breast-feeding after birth.

Drugs and Alchohol

One of the main factors that contribute to HIV/AIDS is the sharing of injection syringes by two persons when one of them is infected. This could prove to be very harmful. Also we should spread the message to adolescent groups to be free from drugs as they offer only temporary relief to problems and their side effects could be devastating. Many of them gain access to drugs easily from peddlars on the road or other sources. Parents, you should be vigilant if you find any change in your child's behaviour,sleeping and eating pattern. Children who tend to be on drugs begin to start stealing from home. Hence, parents you could be on the lookout and help make this world free of drugs.
