What is AIDS?

AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, and it is one of the most feared and widespread diseases today.

What causes AIDS?

AIDS is caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus or HIV, and it can come about if an HIV patient fails to get diagnosed, tested, and treated early on. It is the final stage of HIV, and it does not have a cure at the moment.

Who can get AIDS?

Anyone is at risk of AIDS --- males, females, young ones, and adults. Those that are sexually active and do not use protection when having sex are at greater risk of getting AIDS. People who inject drugs are also more likely to get it. Anyone who gets exposed to HIV contaminated blood may contract this infection.

What should be done to avoid AIDS?

Everyone is urged to always practice safe sex to steer clear of AIDS. Use condoms when having sex. Try to stick to one sex partner so as to minimize the chances of contracting HIV. The more sex partners you have, the greater the chances of you getting AIDS or other STDs. It is also important to get HIV and STD tested routinely to keep yourself updated on your health.
