I’m going to talk about another article; nowadays the AIDS is an important theme in the world because many people die every day for this terrible disease.

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS or Aids) is collection of symptoms and infections resulting of damage to the immune system cause by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in humans. Most researchers believe that HIV originated in sub-Saharan Africa during the twentieth century.

The aids became in a big epidemic in the century XX, and many scientists think that this disease will continue expanding all over the world in the next years. The bad conditions, the lack of sexual education of the people have caused the growth of this disease.

This one is transmitted principally by blood transfusion, Sexual contact and many others but if the woman is pregnant, she can infect her baby the disease through her blood.

These days, there is not any vaccine or cure for the AIDS, the only methods is using an antiretroviral treatment but this one is to slow the aids, due to AIDS is very aggressive and fast.

And many infected people are discriminated for others, even they lose their jobs because of AIDS and no one wants to hire them.

Please take care of yourself, be careful when you are receiving a blood transfusion or having sexual contact, because this disease can take you to the death.
