AIDS - Initial Theories and Disease Progression

AIDS, or the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, is a deadly disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus. It is usually spread through contact of bodily fluids, and more than 33 million people worldwide are infected. But it continues to be a stigmatized disease, and sufferers find it difficult to get support for their condition.

If you, or your family member, or a friend, has AIDS, or you are a doctor who treats AIDS, join this online AIDS forum to meet others with the same condition and find support and resources.

AIDS / HIV - Treatment

It is common knowledge that HIV destroys immune system, killing the CD4 cells, suppressing the affected person’s ability to fight infection. But is HIV treatable? Is anti-retroviral treatment a cure for AIDS?

All your concerns on living with HIV, the prognosis of infection, and its management will be dealt with at this support group. So sign up and clear all those dark clouds about HIV.

AIDS/HIV

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), is a disease which destroys the immune system and makes the affected person vulnerable to opportunistic infections and tumors. There is no cure for AIDS, but modern multi-drug therapies have been successful in helping people with AIDS manage the disease.

Join our online support group for people with AIDS to find help and information from experts and meet others with AIDS.

AIDS/HIV - Clinical Features

Does HIV display any untoward signs soon after infection? Or does the virus remain dormant for a while, and then surface a few years later? What are the other clinical features of HIV? How important is the CD4-T cell count?

To get all your questions on the clinical features of HIV/AIDS answered, our support group is the place for you to be.

AIDS/HIV - Common Opportunistic Infections

HIV weakens the immune system, increasing the individual’s vulnerability to several opportunistic infections. These OIs may also indicate the progression into the AIDS stage of the infection. Common OIs are Kaposi’s sarcoma, Candidiasis, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes simplex virus, TB, malaria, MAC, and pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP).

At our support group, learn how to prevent these opportunistic infections, or if infected, the best ways to manage them. Interact with other patients facing the threat of OIs and also with doctors who will give you trusted medical advice.

AIDS/HIV - Epidemiology

The HIV/AIDS epidemics spreading through the countries of Sub-Saharan Africa are highly varied. Although it is not correct to speak of a single African epidemic, Africa is without doubt the region most affected by the virus.

AIDS/HIV - Health Education

Preventing the spread of HIV requires multi=pronged efforts that include effective, sustained health education and health promotion programs. The ultimate goal is to reduce the further transmission of HIV infections.

All the information you require on the Health Education aspect of HIV is available under the one single roof of this support group. So sign up, share your experiences and ideas and help stem the low of HIV.

AIDS/HIV - Lab Tests and FAQs

Within three months of HIV infection, the immune system develops antibodies in response to the viral entry. An HIV infection test detects the presence of these HIV antibodies.

If you require additional information on the various kinds of tests for HIV, their accuracy and speed of testing, join our support group and gather all the lowdown you need on the subject.

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.

AIDS/HIV - Worldwide distribution and Risk of Transmission

Worldwide AIDS surveillance is undertaken by the World Health Organisation. Reports received from collaborating centers around the world are compiled and the numbers are added up to arrive at the current global HIV scenario.

Track this on all such information on our support group for the worldwide distribution and Risk of Transmission of AIDS/HIV.
