HIV Prevention - An Important Attitude Against the AIDS Epidemic
HIV was established as the cause of AIDS in 1983. Since then, we have learned a lot about how HIV can be transmitted and prevented. Today, we have an abundance of tools available to prevent HIV transmission.
Without possible cure, HIV prevention is an important tool!
Even without a cure or vaccine, we have the means to end the epidemic in the United States and around the world.
Therefore, it is good that you consider the following prevention methods:
For approximately 50% of HIV-positive people in the world do not know they are infected. Although it can be scary, knowing your serostatus helps protect your health and that of others!
Because it is procured by START study that the sooner the treatment starts, the better the results.
Is important know the result of the HIV test.
Practice safe sex. When used correctly and consistently, condoms and lubricants can significantly reduce the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
Use pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). PrEP is a pill taken when taken consistently once daily by HIV-negative people who have been shown to be very effective in preventing HIV transmission. It is recommended that condoms be used in conjunction with PrEP.
Treatment as a prevention to HIV infection? Good…
Get HIV treatment. Treatment as prevention (TasP) involves prescribing anti-HIV drugs to those who are infected with HIV, thereby reducing the amount of virus in the blood (and genital fluids) and therefore they are less likely to infect other people .
I'm translating a document so we can talk more about TasP.
It's a good idea not to use drugs.
THIS IS ONE OF THE WORST SETTINGS. The Overdose. It is usually followed by a "GAME OVER". But it can be the way to a life with HIV or AIDS. I consider drug use "the end of the sting. And yet, I recognize that not everyone thinks I do.
In HIV Prevention the Ideal is Not to Share Needles and Syringes.
So I better make you think of "DO NOT SHARE" needles, syringes, and other materials, even water, as a means of HIV prevention. What is collective path (the responsibility of each one for all) to extinguish AIDS
Reduce the risk of drug injections. If you inject drugs, never share needles, syringes or other "equipment". If no unused injection equipment is available, be sure to clean needles, syringes, and other materials shared with bleach and water.
Reduce mother-to-child transmission. If you are pregnant - or are planning to start a family - get tested for HIV. If you are HIV-positive, careful antenatal care, including the use of anti-HIV drugs for the mother, can greatly reduce the risk of passing the virus to the baby at 2% or less.

Perform post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP). PEP involves taking a short course of antiretroviral drugs, usually for a month, after a high-risk exposure.
