In terms of percentage, this statistic is around 0.3 percent, which might not seem too large.However, when this statistic is converted to actual numbers it becomes 2.1 million people who are HIV positive.
Other initiatives target vulnerable people and communities so that they are fully informed and able to prevent the disease from spreading.
Conclusion While new therapies can help in controlling HIV from spreading all over the body, awareness is the key to actually prevent AIDS from spreading across populations.
Unfortunately, this taboo meant that not enough information was being shared about how the disease spread, since most people were wary of talking about it.
Combine the lack of a cure with this lack of information in public forums and you get a pandemic that has resulted in over 28.9 million deaths.
Therefore, any preventative measures need to take these factors into account.
Some things that one can do to protect themselves are: Preventive Measures for AIDSConclusion Since there is no cure for AIDS at the moment, prevention is definitely better than cure in the case of this disease.Importance of Awareness There is only one way to fight the spread of AIDS and that is through creating awareness.Ignorance of is the causes and methods of transfer of HIV and it only makes a bad situation fully worse.Prevention and Treatment Efforts Fortunately, there has been a concerted drive by the UN, the Indian government and various non-profits organizations to reduce the risk that these sections of the populace face.The number of AIDS testing and counselling sites has gone from only 67 in 1997 to 20,000 in 2016.Some simple preventative measures can ensure that the spread of the virus is limited if not completely halted.Introduction The fact that India has the world’s second-largest population is part of the reason that India has the world’s third largest HIV epidemic.It has no known cure although there are medicines to slow down or completely inhibit the virus spread.Since one of the main methods of transfer of the virus is through unprotected sex, AIDS also carries with it a stigma that ensures that society didn’t discuss it openly for a long time.There are treatments available but they can only inhibit the virus; they can’t eliminate it from the body entirely.In these circumstances, it becomes imperative that we focus on prevention to get to the root of the problem.
