|Introduction to HIV/AIDS|
|HIV/ AIDS is a global pandemic that affects millions of people worldwide.|
HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus, which attacks the immune system.
AIDS stands for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, the final stage of HIV infection.
|Transmission of HIV|
|HIV can be transmitted through unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected person.|
Sharing contaminated needles and syringes is another common mode of transmission.
Mother-to-child transmission can occur during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding.
|Symptoms and Progression of HIV/AIDS|
|Early symptoms of HIV infection may include fever, fatigue, and swollen lymph nodes.|
As the disease progresses, individuals may experience weight loss, chronic diarrhea, and opportunistic infections.
Without treatment, HIV can lead to AIDS, where the immune system is severely compromised.
|Prevention and Treatment of HIV/AIDS|
|Prevention strategies include practicing safe sex, using sterile needles, and regular HIV testing.|
Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is the standard treatment for HIV/ AIDS, which helps control the virus and improve immune function.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a preventive measure for high-risk individuals to reduce the chances of acquiring HIV.
|Stigma and Discrimination|
|People living with HIV/ AIDS often face stigma and discrimination, which can hinder their access to healthcare and support.|
Education and awareness campaigns play a crucial role in reducing stigma and promoting acceptance.
Community support groups and counseling services help individuals cope with the emotional and social challenges associated with HIV/ AIDS.
|Thank you for your attention and interest in learning about HIV/ AIDS.|
