    African Americans are the racial/ethnic group most affected by HIV.
    In 2009, African Americans comprised 14% of the US population but accounted for 44% of all new HIV infections.
    Young African American gay and bisexual men are especially at risk of HIV infection.

Body’s defense mechanism is activated as a results and person’s immune system produces antibodies to fight this foreign matter. Generally, antibodies are formed days after the infection.

      Yes, because in poor countries, because of the living environment is bad, and education level is low, limited budget, plus lack of medical care, prevention and control means backward and unable to buy the drugs and other reasons, the spread of HIV/AIDS is especially surprising speed.

    Article: A Bold Move On AIDS In South Africa

    What i learned in this article: In South AFrica, the AID drug– Nevirapine– is being given to pregnant women without government permission. But results/data have told us that Nevirapine does reduce the risk of transmission from mother to child as mush as 50%! Also every year sadly, 70,000 babies are born HIV postive in South Africa.

    My experience with this article: I think this is a great piece of writing! It has a lot of stats and information on how South Africa plans to abolish this problem. I highly recommend reading this article.

    this is the link i am replying to

    As their numbers grew and more civilians tested positive, the government opened sanitariums — both to keep the infected from having sex with anyone uninfected and to help them die comfortably.

    “As their numbers grew and more civilians tested positive, the government opened sanitariums — both to keep the infected from having sex with anyone uninfected and to help them die comfortably.”
    a question that came up while i was reading this paragraph was can a person who has hiv/aids have sexual intercourse with another person who is “infected” and not cause anymore damage?

    HIV has been found in saliva, tears, nervous system tissue and spinal fluid, blood, semen (including pre-seminal fluid, which is the liquid that comes out before ejaculation), vaginal fluid, and breast milk. However, only blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk generally transmit infection to others.

    This explains how people could get the virus.

    Common symptoms are:
    Chills
    Fevers
    Sweats (particularly at night)
    Swollen lymph glands
    Weakness
    Weight loss
    Note: Initial infection with HIV may produce no symptoms. Some people, however, do experience flu-like symptoms with fever, rash, sore throat, and swollen lymph nodes, usually 2 – 4 weeks after contracting the virus. Some people with HIV infection stay symptom-free for years between the time they are exposed to the virus and when they develop AIDS.

    If people know the symptoms then maybe they could fight it before it gets worse.

    Good morning everyone, while reading the NYTimes this morning I saw an article about a drug called Truvada that might be able to prevent HIV and AIDS. If you need more information about the future of this problem type Truvada into the search box of the NYTimes. I know the most recent article is about US but in the future, if it works here, it might become worldwide, so you can still use the article.

    If we look back at the history of AIDS in Africa to 30 years ago it was virtually non existent. The numbers started to grow in the 1980’s, with massive a outbreak, and steep increase in the 1990’s. In the year 2000 just in Sub Saharan Africa the figures of people living with HIV were a staggering 25 million.

    “Twenty years ago, on June 5, 1981, MMWR published a report of five cases of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) among previously healthy young men in Los Angeles. All of the men were described as ‘homosexuals’; two had died”

    This quote shows how the disease started to spread.
