As the world population continues to balloon, there are diseases that continue to increase in several communities around the world. Diseases that have yet to find a cure is causing a concern for every country around the world as it can cause a significant risk to the health and safety of the population. HIV infection is one of the few diseases that are still creating a scientific chaos for pharmaceutical company researchers to find a cure for the disease in the future.

As we all know, HIV is a very contagious disease. There were already numerous attempts to solve the pandemic through the creation of vaccination. However, almost all attempts failed because it is very difficult to find the most suitable vaccination to contain the disease. As a result, there are still millions of patients who die with the virus when it will progressed into full-blown AIDS. This is an issue that can cause harm as well as risk to other individuals to be exposed as well as to become highly vulnerable to the disease.

HIV disease (Human Immunodeficiency virus) is an infectious disease that affects our society today. The disease  is caused by the human immune deficiency virus responsible for causing the immunity of an infected human to become weaker. When the virus reaches its full-blown stage, it is now termed as AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), which is the end stage of the virus that totally shuts down the defense system of the person. During this stage, the patient starts to suffer from different complications that can further increase the burden of their medical condition until they wait for their demise.

For many, HIV is a humiliating disease. Patients with HIV are often discriminated by their peers due to lack of knowledge about the nature of the disease. Infected individuals eventually lose their friends, families, and jobs for having this medical condition to their body. Medical practitioners believe that contracting HIV is similar to the condition of patients who are suffering from a progressive stage cancer. This is because there is still no cure for the disease wherein patients eventually die after a few years from the day of their exposure to the virus.

  • Mode of transmission is not properly understood.
  • Male to male contact transmission is the most active state.

HIV is secretly spreading across our communities without our knowledge. In every reported new case of people infected with HIV, there is an estimated average of more than 3/4 who are still afraid of getting tested.

There are several dating applications that promote promiscuity among members. These dating applications are the entry portal for innocent individuals who are at high risk of contracting the disease.

There is at least a total of at least 40 million who are now suffering from HIV infection around the world. The number is expected to rise for the coming months due to more people exposed to the disease.

Top countries that have the most number of HIV cases are South Africa, Nigeria, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, United States, and Malawi.

The country with the fastest growing rate of HIV is the Philippines. Even if the country has one of the lowest confirmed cases of HIV in the world, it can soon catch up with the top 10 countries with the highest rates in the future if it continues to remain to have the fastest growing reported cases.

How to prevent being contracted with the disease

  • Be monogamous.
  • Always use protection when engaging in intercourse. 
  • Avoid using used syringe that are possibly contaminated.
  • Be always informed. 
  • Never engage in a one-night stand with total strangers.
  • Never use sharp personal objects from other individuals (shave, safety pins, blade).
  • Get tested regularly to accredited testing centers. 
  • Be always informed by scooping health related topics from news and reading any insightful materials about HIV/AIDS.
Just the recent, Miss World 2015 Mireia Lalaguna and Miss World Russia 2015 Sofia Nitchuk got themselves tested for HIV. Weeks before, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach hosted an HIV event to spread awareness to protect ourselves from the risks of disease transmission. 

Always remember that it is the best that you should remain free from any disease rather than curing it. Being disease free can help you enjoy your life to the fullest. There is nothing compared to a happy life than a miserable life.

Educate yourself from always reading news updates through television networks, radio stations, and social media reports.

Ignorance always risks your safety because knowing little or nothing always exploits your safety and security that might cause you your life in the future.
