The banalization of AIDS: "It's all normal, it's just you take a pill"

But there were facts, and I'll stick them here, that forced me to put this video online now, rather than just in December, however, some facts came and I could not be silent.

The fact is that I read that does not die over AIDS (and this is a "half-truth because it depends almost have" luck "and be diagnosed early) and that all is well.

I will paste an image from another site that was what led me to put this text and this video here.

The fact is that I saw on google SNNIPET a message that aroused my curiosity and I went there to take a peek and what I saw left me perplexed:

Say such a thing without scientific basis, from armored podium where he hides behind an avatar, implies a great responsibility and I, who am patient's House of AIDS and I go there every six months, always end up finding someone weak, or wheelchair situation, or a person who lost his sight, for example, due to a cytomegalovirus retinitis that if you have been "lucky" will have lost the vision of "one eye" ... on the other hand, I'll never get off, the retinas of my memory, youthful and happy face that girl, so beautiful, that suffered from a bacterium that no one could unravel their nature, resistant to all who tried it, bacteria that had lodged in its maze, you taking the capacity of the balance ... I was "new to this" and asked, foolishly:

- "And that's why you use a wheelchair? - I asked saddened

I was down and ask that lowered my head. She took my head, made me look at her in the eyes and told me, smiling:

- "That's just on the street," and winked at me - "At home I can walk supported on the walls" ...

Living happy, even with balance problems due to rare opportunistic infection arising from HIV infection

Woman happy, despite the inaccurate balance, so it was one of these my memories

The favorable reality is set for those who are "lucky" to be diagnosed prematurely and therefore can live without becoming an AIDS case, unfortunately this is a low percentage of those diagnosed and it should be remembered that between the year 2000 and 2011 die, due to complications generated by AIDS, eleven thousand people.

I'm a case of AIDS because, at the time I was in treatment, the booklet sent that praying prescription treatment when CD4 count got to 350 per ml, regardless of viral load and, today, the booklet reads, and this is very good, that treatment is started immediately after diagnosis, based on a long and extensive study calledSTART(This link opens a window for almost everything I have about this study and you can understand why my gesture to copy and paste images from another site). The fact is that I consider the text in question as an exhortation to unprotected sex; I, as a person living with HIV and AIDS being undetectable for ten years, never risk sex without condoms under any circumstances because I have knowledge (information is everything) of an organic phenomenon called BLIPE VIRAL(Tb open another tab).

On the other hand, a person who "attends the site came up with this definition pearl treatment against HIV:


The Author of this pearl has a brain consists of eight interconnected lentils by cobwebs of wires? Would it be this.

I leave the video below for all to see. He has over 40 minutes and you have to be very interested in watching it.

Here I put another video

and below, an important document.

The re-emergence of the AIDS epidemic in Brazil: Challenges and prospects for solving them

Last December, when we celebrated the World Day of fight against AIDS, the spread of epidemic trends in mundo1 and Brasil2 by the United Nations and the Ministry of Health showed contradictions and questions raised.

Against the world stage, Brazilian data show that AIDS is far from being controlled and which reached its worst indicators in these more than thirty years of the disease. Since 2011 the barrier of forty thousand new cases per year was exceeded, with no signs that will again reduce in a short period of time.

He returned to grow the number of cases among homosexuals, accompanied by the highest concentration of the epidemic in urban centers and increasing male / female ratio, especially due to the reduction of HIV transmission through shared injection drug use and slowing transmission heterosexual.

A new generation, born after the mid-1990 also began to show higher incidence rates than those recorded among those who began their sexual life after the epidemic began.

An epidemiological profile that, in a way, back to take similar characteristics to that seen in the early years of 1980 when the disease began to make its first victims and presented a strongly concentrated focus on specific social segments.

Now, however, with incidence rates and more alarming mortality. But what else shows the re-emergence of the disease in the country is the trend of mortality. After reduction followed years the number of deaths and the mortality rate began to grow again.

Only in 2013 12.700 were cases of deaths from the disease, a similar number to the 15 years ago, when the antiretroviral drugs access policy was implemented. In the last seven years the growth of the national mortality rate increased by just over 5%, from 5,9% per hundred thousand inhabitants in 2006, 6,2% for per hundred thousand inhabitants, in 2013.

In the North, Northeast and South rates they came to be up to two times higher than in the period prior to access to antiretroviral drugs policy, counteracting all the advances previously observed in these locations. The resurgence of AIDS in Brazil comes at a time when the accumulated scientific knowledge in the field cast auspicious prospects for controlling the epidemic in the world.

Studies on the effects of antiretroviral drugs used in everyday saúde3 services show that people treated in the early stages of infection had a life expectancy close to uninfected people. This allows us to distinguish a scenario where death from AIDS should be an increasingly rare event.

The greatest excitement, however, came with the studies that reported a reduction of over 90% of HIV transmission in people with HIV treated by antiretrovirals and with complete suppression of viral4 replication.

A protection rate higher than in condom distribution programs. Based on this new scenario, the study matemática6 modeling have indicated that diagnosis and universal treatment of infected people would have the potential to eliminate the occurrence of new infections.

This spurred the Unidas7 Nations to convene countries to deploy up to 2020 ambitious programs to diagnose 90% of people with HIV, treat 90% with antiretrovirals and make 90% of treated have an undetectable viral load.

It's called 90-90-90 goal, according to the United Nations, could lead to the end of the epidemic in the world until 2030.

In addition to the controversy about the feasibility of epidemic control strategies based on drug treatment achieve full success - just observe the permanence of tuberculosis and leprosy as major public health problems, despite the existence of effective treatments for healing and to avoid transmission of infections - the UN proposal brought to the center of the debate the ability of health systems to absorb a large number of infected people and the quality of care provided to them.

In Brazil, the Ministry of Saúde2 data on the "continuous treatment" - with the estimated number of people infected in the country and the percentage of those who know the diagnosis and effective treatment are - pointed to a surprising picture:

The number of infected people who know their diagnosis and are out of health services or with detectable viral load (296000) is about twice the number of people (145000) who do not know their diagnosis.

A clear difficulty of policies to ensure clinical follow-up and adherence to treatment in a sustainable manner over time. Since the beginning of the epidemic, even in the years 1980, a network of care to people infected has been deployed in the country based on the principles of comprehensiveness and interdisciplinarity and quality assessments showing structures and work processes relatively satisfactory for significant portions of the units of health.

In recent years, however, part of this network has been penalized due to underfunding of the Unified Health System (SUS) and the weakening of the response to AIDS in the country.

The recent proposal of the Ministry of Health that network strengthening by expanding care of people infected in primary care leaves questions about its effectiveness. It is true that positive experiences were observed in deployed services at this level of attention, however, evaluations also showed that the worst quality indicators focused on the less complex services.

For those who say I'm "fucks ties" with my pessimism I must retort saying.

Sex, but do not fuck!

Below are some data from a PDF whose origin and link to the document I put below this text:

AIDS in São Paulo

The year 2012 marks the beginning of the fourth decade of the AIDS epidemic in Brazil and Sao Paulo. This report presents the results of three decades closed in 2011, since those years can now be analyzed in its entirety, according to the processes involved in reporting of cases and the time between research, shipping, consolidation and analysis of data .

The first diagnosis of São Paulo and Brazil in 1980, 2013 to June were registered in the State of São Paulo 228.698 AIDS cases (Table 2), which represents about 33% of the caseload of the country. The estimated number of people living with AIDS disease in the state was in 7.601 1991; 51.708 in 2001 and 110.181 2012 in (Table 11 and 4 figure). An increase of about seven times the first to the second decade and twice from second to third decade. Although they may be already known data to 2012, they are still partial and in some graphs and tables, it was decided to consolidate the total to 2011, allowing you to compare the three decades.

In the last decade, the magnitude of the epidemic continues to decline. The incidence rate (IR) in the state, which reached its highest level in 1998, (35 100 per thousand inhabitants--ano), and up to 130 100 per thousand inhabitants--ano among men of the 30 39 years and 60 in women 25 29 the years that year, has been systematically falling, reaching 20,8 2011 in more full year and in 18,0 2012, still incomplete. (5 and 6 Tables)

The regions of Barretos, Santos, São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto and Caraguatatuba, in that order continue to be those with the highest incidence rates (Table 14) and the regions of São Paulo, Campinas, Santo André, Osasco and Santos, that is, the three major metropolitan areas of the state, in that order, were the ones that reported more cases in 2012 (Table 13).

In the first decade, the average IT for the period was 6,4; 30,4 in the second and the last, 21,9 100 cases per thousand-year. For men, the worst year was the 1996 (47,0 IT), while for women was 1998 (IT 23,8) (Table 4). Even with a significant reduction of 40,5% in 2011 compared to 98 when they were recorded over 35 new cases per day, yet on average 23 new AIDS cases has yet come to government services every day (Table 2 and 1 Figure).

This reduction in IT occurs at all ages, being more significant among women (48,0%) than among men (28,7%) and among people of 15 to 49 years (35,9%), than in other age groups (Tables 5 and 6).

In this third decade, AIDS remains a disease of young adults, although it is moving to age groups over 40 years, depending on numerous factors, including the expansion of early HIV diagnosis, followed of people with long diagnosis to the illness and the universal use of antiretrovirals. Of the total number of people affected to date, 87,1% (189.337) had the 15 49 years at diagnosis. In the first decade, the highest incidence was concentrated between the 25 and 29 years (70 in each 100 thousand-year). In 1996, this group goes to second place and the 30 group to 39 years ranks first (TI = 84,9 100.000 cases per inhabitants-year in 1996), remaining in first place in the second and third decades. From 2003, this aging is accentuated further and youth 25 29 the years pass to third place, displaced by 40 group to 49 years. Upon completion of the second decade in 2001, both men and women from the 30 39 years are the most affected and the third decade ends with the people of the 40 49 years equaling to them (Table 6).

With regard to education (Table 8) women continue focusing a little

more between four and eight years of education than men (67 60% and% respectively) at the expense of a lower proportion of women with 12 or more years of schooling than men -16,9% of men and 5,7% of women they have educated less than 12 years.

The beginning of the second decade in the years 90 marks the intensification of the epidemic among women. The proportion of the first decade, more than five men diagnosed for every woman reaches three in the years 90 and reaches up to 1,64 men for every woman in 2005, but at the end of the third decade, seems to be emerging a new upsurge trend among men with the increase of masculine reason in / female rising to 2,27 as the years 1996-1997 (Table 4 and 2 Figure).

Among women, the epidemic has reached more strongly the youth 15 19 the years than young men of the same age, despite the cases of hemophilia totaling 367 2012 to the state and in the early years predominated at that age. They sickened more than boys, since 1997, but there is a tendency to equate them after 2008 with significant proportional increase in the number of cases up to 19 years boys (IT 4,8 and 3,9 by bitante-year ha- in 2010 and 2011 respectively, and 2,4 and 2,1 among girls) (Table 6).

Most women resident in the state infected by the HIV in heterosexual relationships. Of 86,7% of reported cases of which have information about the likely form of infection, 74,8% are heterosexual transmission. The injecting drug use accounts for 11,3% remaining, although in the first decade has come to 43% of known cases on average in the second 16,3 4,2% and% in the latter. Blood transfusions always account for a small part of the notifications, in all periods, and there is no case in the state since 2008 (Table 11).

The drop in incidence favors women. In 2010, there were about 40% fewer female cases reported than in 2000, while the reduction among men was about 30% in the period. Remember, however, the shift of the epidemic among women for the ranges above 40 years.

The error in the data record hindered any analysis of race / color / ethnicity

ses 30 years, however, the improvement of the records, together with the data from the census of 2010, allows for the first time, we can talk about the incidence among white, black and brown. The data show that for an impact between the people in white for each 15,5 100 thousand-year and between the brown 14,7 of the black color have almost twice: an incidence 28,9. This shows the need for prioritization of vulnerability aspects of this population, particularly with regard to prevention. The incidence among indigenous can not be considered in quantitative terms, due to their small number (73 cases since the beginning of the epidemic). Differentiation between villagers and not settled Indians and the migration of Latin American countries to São Paulo from registered persons or self referred to as in

dígenas phenomena are not studied that require specific and qualitative analysis. Although it is still early to state due to small numbers, it seems to be an increased incidence of self-reported population as yellow, which was 14,4 100 cases per thousand-year 2010 (Table 7).

The distribution of the incidence of AIDS according to the color / race / ethnicity, self-reported in 28 Epidemiological Surveillance Groups in the year 2010 in the table below shows how much is required attention to this invisible matter in these three decades. the highest incidence of AIDS in people of black color than white and brown is evident, especially in the regions of Barretos, Bauru and Ribeirao Preto, even when considering the changes in the composition of color / race population of these regions.

The smaller reduction in incidence among men and, among them, the smallest reduction in young people, should be considered in conjunction with the resurgence of the epidemic in men who have sex with men, since this type of exposure to HIV has been observed increase and not decrease as women, children, heterosexual men, injecting drug users or people transfused (Table 11, 12 and 3 Figure). Recent seroprevalence among gay studies (Sampacentro) showed positivity ity of 16% for HIV in this population.

After 30 years into the epidemic, no longer justified the diagnosis as late as the one that occurred in the first case. This scenario has shown improvement in the last decade. Included in February 2013 as an indicator of Organisational Contract of the Public Health Action (COAP) for the years 2013 2015 to the first count of T-cells CD4 held by people with HIV allows monitoring the situation. Nearly half of the HIV carriers in the state of São Paulo (42%) came to the services, between 2003 and 2006, with the cell count of T-CD4 below 200, which reveals late access to health services. This rate fell to 30% in 2008 and 25 2012% in the result, among other measures, the expansion of supply of testing for HIV infection1.

Each 100 thousand inhabitants of São Paulo, in 1991, 13 14 to have died with AIDS as the leading cause of death. In 2012 was reached the unprecedented level of 6,6 100 deaths per thousand-year2A reduction of 3,5 times the risk of death from AIDS, from the peak of 22,9 100 deaths per thousand-year in 1995 (Table 1). In 2012 2.767 people died - 1.856 911 men and women from AIDS, while maintaining consistent downward trend started in 1996 (Table 17), especially with the advent of antiretroviral drugs. Nevertheless, AIDS remains between the first five

causes of death among adults in the 25 44 years for both men and women, from 1996 until today (Table 2).

Since the beginning of the epidemic until 2012, AIDS has already led to death 103.267 people in the state. With the advent of antiretroviral drugs in 1995 1999 the period, mortality from AIDS was reduced by half. After 13 years, is new equal reduction, ie the fall, although consistent, is occurring at a slower rate. Another impact factor of attention to measures to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV / AIDS is the average age of death that was 33,4 years for men and 29,1 for women in 1990 and went to 43,7 years for men and 43 for women in 2012 '.

Mortality has been falling in the middle of the state, but between the 150 municipalities with the highest number of deaths, which occur 98% of state deaths, there are 70 them that present mortality rates for major AIDS than 6,6 deaths 100 inhabitants-year the state of São Paulo, where factors such as late diagnosis, co-infections, lack of access to health resources, among others, are reaching people living with HIV / AIDS more intensely than in other locations (Table 18 and Figure 5).

All died of AIDS should be investigated and their known conditions, a routine activity of surveillance services, municipalities and regions, so that they can further reduce these occurrences, increasingly preventable.

Begins a fourth decade in which people live longer and better. Arise, however, new questions added to existing challenges. Issues related to the higher volume of resources needed to meet this greater number of people and the development of new technologies involved in the prevention and cui
