  • 1. AIDS OR HIV
    By: Yanniv Mbiango
  • 2.
  • 3. General Info
    Aids and HIV are STD’s (Sexually Transmitted Disease’s)
    HIV is transmitted through direct contact of mucose membrane or the bloodstream with a bodily fluid containing HIV, such as blood, semen, vaginal fluid, preseminal fluid, and breast milk.
    Aids will eventually destroy your immune system and or may leave deadly tumors.
    One in ten infections in the world were acquired through sharing drug injecting equipment with someone with Aids.
    About 16,800 men and women were infected with HIV through transfusions of blood which contained the virus.
  • 4. Statistics
    People living with HIV/AIDS in 2007 33.0 million
    Adults living with HIV/AIDS in 2007 30.8 million
    Women living with HIV/AIDS in 2007 15.5 million
    Children living with HIV/AIDS in 2007 2.0 million
    HIV/AIDS are mostly centered in Africa
    Africa has 11.6 million AIDS orphans.

  • 7. Symptoms
    When first infected with HIV, you may have no signs or symptoms at all, although it's more common to develop a short flu-like illness two to four weeks after becoming infected.
    Headache, Sore throat, Swollen lymph glands, and Rash are symptoms.
    You may remain symptom-free for eight or nine years or more. But as the virus continues to multiply and destroy immune cells, you may develop mild infections or chronic symptoms
    Swollen lymph nodes — often one of the first signs of HIV infection, Diarrhea, Weight loss, Fever, and Cough and shortness of breath are later symptoms
  • 8. Treatments
    The treatment consists of drugs that have to be taken every day for the rest of a person’s life.
    The aim of antiretroviral treatment is to keep the amount of HIV in the body at a low level. This stops any weakening of the immune system and allows it to recover from any damage.
    They are referred to as: antiretrovirals, anti-HIV or anti-AIDS drugs, HIV antiviral drugs, and ARV’s
  • 9. Discovery
    The earliest known case of HIV in a human was from a blood sample collected in 1959 from a man in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo.
    We know that the virus has existed in the United States since at least the mid- to late 1970s.
  • 10. Point of Interest
    What interests me the most is that HIV can be transmitted in various ways. Its amazing how careful we have to be when we have sexual intercourse, or any kids of interaction with any human.
