The World AIDS Day is being observed today (December 1) across the globe to create awareness about AIDS. The day as the name suggests is to show support for people living with HIV and the ones who have lost their lives because of AIDS.
The theme of World AIDS Day 2020 is “Global solidarity, shared responsibility”. The World AIDS Day was first marked in 1988 and was also the first-ever international day for global health.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the virus that causes AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). When a person becomes infected with HIV, the virus attacks and weakens the immune system. As the immune system weakens, the person is at risk of getting life-threatening infections and cancers. Over time, HIV can destroy so many of these cells that the body can’t fight off infections and disease. These opportunistic infections or cancers take advantage of a very weak immune system and signal that the person has AIDS, the last state of HIV infection. Once a person has the virus, it stays inside the body for life.
The disease is not entirely curable but there are quite a few protective measures that one must adopt in their everyday life to prevent the contract of the disease. The preventive measures against HIV AIDS include, using protection during sexual intercourse, avoid sharing needles, blades etc. with other people and building good body immunity. Taking these preventive steps lessens the risks of getting infected by HIV virus.
Even though the awareness about AIDS and HIV has increased but still millions of people around the world continue to contract HIV and die of the last stage of the virus's infection, AIDS.
