HIV infection is a chronic and sometimes fatal disease. It is generally caused by the human immunodeficiency virus. It gets infected as a result of a weakened immune system within our bodies. As a result, the body’s ability or strength to fight infections is impaired. It is also well known for having acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. It is usually acquired during sex or by sharing the same needles. As a result, it is well-known for its transmission via body fluid exchange. It also spreads from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding.
Without medications, it is nearly impossible to expect a quick recovery from diseases like AIDS. As a result, while there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, medication may aid in its prevention and progression. Thus, HIV treatment helps reduce the amount of HIV in the body and helps an individual to stay healthy.
As a result, it is critical to understand how to prevent HIV, which will aid in preventing its spread to others. Also, antiviral treatments have reduced the number of deaths from this deadly disease. This has aided in the control of its spread, leading to the implementation of additional measures around the world.
There are numerous ways to reduce your risk of contracting HIV. As a result, we recognize this World Aid Day as a critical opportunity to raise awareness about it. In addition, we also celebrate victories for increased access to treatment services.
Have a physical examination
It is critical to becoming aware of interactions and behaviors that put you at risk of infection. As a result, it is critical to take precautions, if you suspect anyone in your vicinity who is infected with this virus. Also, people can now obtain free or low-cost testing. The CDC recommends that everyone aged 13 to 64 gets tested for HIV at least once. As a result, before having sex with someone, consult with a medical practitioner about your sex and drug use history.
Follow a treatment plan
The best way to prevent AIDS is by taking care of yourself by adhering to treatment plans. This includes taking prescribed medications on time. In addition, attending appointments on a regular basis also becomes necessary to monitor check-ups. This may also necessitate changes and adjustments to the treatment plan with the healthcare team. Also, it may lead to a decrease in viral load. This becomes so negligible through the help of treatment that it may not be detected in a test.
Protect HIV spread from others
Try using HIV prevention tools to take precautions. If you are an HIV patient, make people aware of your status before getting injected with drugs. Also, inform your sexual partner about PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis). Limit your sexual partners in case you are infected with an undetectable viral load. In the case of pregnancies, adhering to the treatment plan can lower your risk of transmitting to the child. Including ART medications, involves a regimen of taking a combination of HIV medicines every day.
