According to notisa, an agency of scientific news, the HIV epidemic is growing rapidly, in vain all the progress made by big and small nations on the planet, the 34 million people infected a group of about ten million HIV-positive people It is in the age group of young people between the 15 24 years.
Several indicators in various contexts indicate that it is within this age group there is the highest number of STIs and therefore who should be a priority target in all actions for the prevention of AIDS and other STDs, with a view that when there is the presence of other STIs, some of them extremely treacherous as they are virtually silent and asymptomatic early in its evolution, the fastest growing chances of contracting HIV.
The article "Factors associated with HIV / AIDS among adolescents and young adults enrolled in Testing and Counseling Center in the State of Bahia, Brazil", published in the journal Science & Public Health last year, outlines the factors related to the prevalence of the disease in this group. The author is a researcher Bianca de Souza Pereira and colleagues at the State University of Feira de Santana (UEFS).
The research investigated the tests for HIV detection 3768 young people, aged between 13 24 the years, all performed at the Municipal Reference Center for STD / HIV / AIDS in the city of Feira de Santana.
The researchers found that 1,94% of these young people has been diagnosed as reagents (positive for HIV), and that the overwhelming majority of this population were women (73,1%), brown (70-80%), with eight or more years education (60-80%), living in Feira de Santana (83-97%) and urban areas (95-100%).
Research also raised that among these young women, a higher proportion of HIV positive among women in stable relationships or married and also had higher incidence of drug and alcohol.
Among young males, gay and bisexual prevalence showed a higher incidence than among heterosexuals - of eighty-six young heterosexual tested about of the 16 17 percent received the diagnosis reagent for HIV while all 14 homosexual or bisexual presented the disease. Furthermore, the proportion of the prevalence of other STDs in seropositive (70%) was approximately three times greater than half seronegative (21,3%).
This further supports my reasoning, which concluded that the most vulnerable people in Brazil are women (young or old, married or not) most in need of attention in this age group, and that a PrEP strategy would be necessary and harm reduction while on the other hand, are necessary preventive education campaigns among them who need to be aware of their rights as citizens, and its partners, which should (must) be made aware of the use of condoms in all relationships sex, it is demonstrating that it is not only HIV / AIDS that they avoid but also unwanted or unplanned pregnancy, as well as syphilis and other STDs; On the other hand, young people should also be made aware of condom use and the search for health centers for PEP, Now available in Brazil.
