    Default AIDS

    Wish you all a WORLD AIDS DAY - December 1. Know AIDS say no to AIDS.

    Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a Sexually transmitted disease having no vaccine at all. Potential ways of disease infection are infected blood, saliva, urine, sperm and vaginal fluids. The virus become active after a period of 6 months (incubation period) and can be detected by tests - Western blot test, Elisa test.

    Once test is positive, avoid the virus exposure in the future. Every exposure increses the number of virus and the patient's condition will go worse with in a short period. Normally, if detected early, with medicines one can delay the coming of severe diseases viz TB, some type of cancer , skin diseases etc. AIDS is fastly spreading all over the world.

    I think it's gone on for too long, though. It's going to be hard to stop.

    Default AIDS

    The dreaded disease is spreading very fast in varoius countreis all over the world. By WHO reports India has the largest population of AIDS affected people - 57 million. The worst condition exists (India) in the case of treatment available to patients - Only 7% of the diseased get treatment.

    Basically, there is no treatment for AIDS. Lot of firms claims a cure for the epidemic, but not proved yet. If one is infected/have a chance to get ifected, go for a voluntary check up. If affected don't be panic, consult a doctor and statrt medication. With ityou can live healthy for 10 to 12 years.

    Prevention is better than cure.

    No sex, no life - Practice safe sex.
