Charities and normal people should organize events to raise money and awareness about AIDS. Men who have sex with men are also in high risk which makes them a huge threat. They should wear condoms at all times and learn how to have safer sexual relationships.Also more needle exchanges should take place in blood donation organizations. More media and ad campaigns should encourage proper protection and introduce AIDS to people.About 6,000 people become infected with HIV everyday and more than two thirds of them are under the age of 25. Young people who use drugs are at most risk for catching AIDS or HIV infections. These young people should be properly taught about sexual education at schools and communities.

Sexual avatars that encourage delayed sex should also be distributed for teenagers to give them a better point of view.I think my ideas would most certainly work and help the AIDS epidemic calm down, if they were properly applied. All of these ideas should aware the people and encourage the safest sex. Also, when everyone realizes how much AIDS is fatal they’ll feel intimidated and vulnerable, and would start acting quickly. Don’t think you can’t contract AIDS, because when you least pay attention to what you’re doing you could, so you need to be careful.
