Avni Mahiji博士重视艾滋病毒/艾滋病治疗和预防措施

自1981年发现艾滋病毒/艾滋病以来,该病毒已造成3900多万人死亡。最近向公众宣布他是艾滋病病毒感染者,查理·辛恩将魔术师约翰逊加入到身患病人的队伍中。由于这个启示,有关艾滋病毒/艾滋病的传闻一直在淹没这个消息。随着成千上万的人准备在2015年12月1日观察世界艾滋病日,卫生官员和研究人员正在全球范围内增加新的感染情况。随着许多不正确的事实浮现,公众了解病毒和艾滋病毒与艾滋病之间的区别很重要。

人体免疫缺陷病毒(HIV)攻击身体的免疫系统,导致感染,癌症和艾滋病。艾滋病通过破坏重要细胞而减弱免疫系统,随着时间的推移,身体无法抵御有害的感染和疾病。人体不能摆脱艾滋病毒,所以一旦诊断出来,你就有生命。

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is an illness caused by HIV. AIDS is the stage of infection that occurs when your immune system is badly damaged and you become vulnerable to opportunistic infections. Without treatment, people who are living with AIDS typically survive about 3 years. There are medications, such as Non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors  (NNRTIs), that are highly effective in fighting AIDS and its complications. They help reduce the HIV virus within the body and keep the immune system as healthy as possible with little complications.

There are many more tools today to prevent HIV than ever before. To reduce your risk of HIV infection you should limit your number of sexual partners, practice safe sex by using condoms correctly and consistently including anal, oral, and vaginal, you should never share needles .It is also important to take advantage of newer biomedical options such as pre-exposure prophylaxis. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a pill prevention option for those who are at high risk of getting HIV. PrEP does not mean it’s ok to have unprotected sex; one should always protect themselves by the use of condoms.

At this time, there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, but there are effective medications that fight and help prevent HIV and its complications. Researchers and doctors have made tremendous strides in acquiring knowledge about both HIV and AIDS and remain optimistic.
