Since the epidemic was first identified in 1981, scientists, physicians, public officials, and journalists have frequently raised historical questions. Most often these questions have been about contemporary social and epidemiological history: Why did the disease emerge when and where it did? How has it spread among members of particular groups?What does the history of medical science and public health in this century suggest about our ability to control the epidemic and eventually to cure the disease

AIDS is a serious fatal disease of the immune system that is transmitted through sexual contact, blood products, or contaminated needles. Ever since aids has been first recognized in June, 5, 1981 about 25 million people have died. It is a rapidly growing disease that has spread worldwide with no absolute cure yet. Each year millions of people die and the number of people living with HIV keep rising continuously.Putting a stop for such an epidemic disease is not easy. With no cure yet AIDS can not be just omitted out of our lives. I believe there are many proper ways where we can prevent AIDS\HIV from happening. It is not easy but throughout these ways we could slow down the disease and

HIV/AIDS is a deadly infectious disease that has killed millions across the globe. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infects and destroys the white blood cells (called CD4+ T-lymphocytes or CD4 T-cells) of the body's immune system. Thus, HIV reduces the ability of the body's immune system to respond to infection, increasing susceptibility to opportunistic infections and some types of cancer. Transmission of HIV in Australia occurs primarily through sexual contact between men. The virus can be transmitted also through sexual contacts between men and women or by sharing needles and/or syringes with someone who is infected. The virus can cause specific diseases of its own and, at later stages

HIV in the world. In 2016, there were 790,000 new HIV infections, 43% of the global total.
South Africa accounted the one third (270,000) of the region’s new infections in 2016, with another 50% occurring in eight countries: Mozambique, Kenya, Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Malawi, and Ethiopia.
Just under half a million people (420,000) died of AIDS-related illnesses in East and Southern Africa in 2016, although the number of deaths has fallen significantly from 760,000 in 2010.

The unique, deadly disease AIDS has invaded the lives of millions of American families. It apparently has caused dynamics changes in society. AIDS has caused many infected patients to rethink their own social behavior and status. However, sometimes it is not necessary to completely shift one's personal routine just because the chance of living a semblance of a normal life depends on how the infected person reacts to the disease. First of all, those who are HIV positive may not have AIDS; therefore, if I had been diagnosed as HIV positive, I would establish a calm and strong confidence by reassuring myself of the fact that I may not necessary have as crucial of a situation as being diagnosed

Human immunodeficiency virus, also known as HIV, is the leading cause of AIDS which
stands for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. AIDS is a potential life-changing condition
that currently has no cure. Before an individual is diagnosed with AIDS, they are diagnosed with
HIV first. When the virus attacks the immune system, the body’s ability to fight the infectious
organisms of the syndrome is interfered with. HIV is also considered a STI or a sexually
transmitted infection. The most common ways the virus can spread is through contact with
infected blood or from mother to child

The AIDS virus is one of the most deadly and most wide spread diseases in themodern era. The disease was first found in 1981 as doctors around the United Statesbegan to report groups of young, homosexual men developing a rare pneumoniacaused by an organism called Penumocystis carini. These patients then went on todevelop many other new and rare complications that had previously been seen only inpatients with severely damaged immune systems. The Center for Disease Control inthe United States named this new epidemic the acquired immunodeficiency syndromeand defined it by a specific set of symptoms. In 1983, researchers finally identified thevirus that caused AIDS. They named the virus the

My first point is that alcohol consumption can cause major health problems, including liver disease and injuries sustained in automobile accidents. In fact, researchers have linked alcohol consumption to over 60 diseases and illnesses. This proves that alcoholism can present many dangers to students.

They will be interesting to compare regarding the causes of death- AIDS and war- being natural or man-made.Structurally, the poems are similar on the page, both being split up into stanzas. Their different uses of rhyming techniques are also useful areas for comparison and contrast, one poet choosing half instead of full-rhyme and the changing the position of the rhymes in each stanza. The reasons for this become evident when analysing the poems in-depth.'The Reassurance' is about the death of someone the narrator knew (from AIDS). It describes this person as 'kind' to move away

evil - as in (Isaiah 5:20). They are making the homosexuals look like the poor "underdog" - and since "we" "as a nation" usually all stick up for the "underdog" the homosexuals can come out in public with their wickedness and do whatever they want and get away with it. If we speak against them we come out as the criminals because of hate crime laws. But if they come out and lash out at us they get away with it. Homosexuals are not only morally very wicked, un Godly, and SICK, but they are also extremely unpleasant to be around. It's their whole way of living, everything they do revolves around them and their agenda, it controls them, it is their god. This book tells about what homosexuals do and why they are dying from aids, and what the percentages are for how long they live and why they have such a short life span and the health and hygiene issues and abuses that they bring on themselves.

apnea, and asthma.In this age of fast foods and "instant" meals, it has become common practice for consumers to ignore the nutritional or, in some cases, the non-nutritional value of these products. While these foods are convenient, they are also harmful to the health of our children. Loaded with sugar, fats, and sodium, they increase the bodies inability to burn off excess fat from these products.Our culture has also become less active. With the increase of video games and computer technology, playing video games has taken precedence over physical activity. Children are more apt to ask for a new computer than a bicycle. This decrease in physical activity, also aids the body to store fat rather than burn it off.Asthmatics who manage their disease with steroid medications, either through inhalers or pill form, run the risk of retaining fluids, which leads to becoming overweight. With added weight it becomes difficult for the asthmatic to stay physically active. Often times even a short walk can bring about an asthma episode.

SSL should be required in all high schools because of the benefits of not only the service, but the effects outweigh the reasons to dispose of it.

enrol in. This idea of research as a benefit really took off through HIV/AIDS activism in the 1980s. At the time, AIDS was a terrifying and deadly disease with no known treatments. Importantly, the patient population was disproportionately well-educated and science-savvy, so they were able to launch highly visible campaigns demanding access to the only chance of a cure that they had: drugs still in early stages of development. As one slogan went, ‘research trials are treatment too’.
Since this time there have been concerted efforts to allow access to trials to persons who historically have been excluded, particularly women. Up until surprisingly recently, clinical trials routinely only enrolled men, based largely on concerns about potential harms to foetuses—even in women who were using effective contraception. The ethical principle of justice is now interpreted as requiring a good reason for excluding any patient population, including women of childbearing age.

Microorganism Profile Assignment

1. Description of the Microorganism:
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a highly complex RNA virus of the genus Lentivirus within the Retroviridae family. The virus is spherical that contains a core that contains two strands of genomic RNA and is surrounded by a lipid envelope. The lipid envelope is derived from the host plasma membrane. HIV-2 is less prevalent and less pathogenic type and is found primarily in western Africa, (Engelkirk, 2015).
