There are many health diseases that people don’t even like to talk about, either out of shame or the fear of society’s boycott action. Which is wrong, there are indeed several diseases which are contagious and can affect others badly but this doesn’t mean that people should be ashamed of it or that society should boycott them.
It is an equal responsibility of the infected person as well as the society to balance it. The person who is suffering from any particular contagious disease should know his or her limits and take precautions as per that. Accordingly, society should coordinate with them and help them in any way possible instead of making it hard on them.
AIDS is one such disease and its vaccine is yet to develop. HIV results in AIDS and intervenes with the body’s capacity to fight illnesses.
The virus can be disseminated through contact with infected blood, semen, or vaginal fluids. There is no cure to it in the present moment. That’s why everybody needs to know about this dangerous disease to avoid getting in contact with it.
When And Why?
1st of December is celebrated as World AIDS day. The day is celebrated every year to raise awareness among people about AIDS, as well as to mourn for those who could not make it because of this disease. Administration and health officials, non-governmental institutions, and individuals around the world observe the day, often with education on AIDS prevention and control.
You will be shocked to know that as of 2017, AIDS has killed between 28.9 million and 41.5 million people widespread, and an estimated 36.7 million people are dwelling with HIV, creating it one of the most crucial global public health issues in recorded history. Thankfully to current enhanced access to antiretroviral therapy in several regions of the world, the loss ratio from the AIDS epidemic has reduced.
This day increases awareness that it is not something that can be ignored or passed by, people need to understand its seriousness as well as how to prevent and to control it. World AIDS Day was first developed in August 1987 by James W. Bunn and Thomas Netter, two public information officers for the Global Programme on AIDS at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland.
World Aids Day Theme 2020
This day is celebrated with the theme every year and the theme for 2020 is, ‘Ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic: Resilience and Impact.’ This theme is moreover an indication that people can achieve a thing, if they make a mutual action to provide high-quality services for therapy and prevention of HIV, to the ones who are in the necessity, to show help for people surviving with and affected by HIV, and to recall those who have lost their lives to AIDS.
Let’s take a stand and show some support by spreading awareness and helping the sufferers.
