World AIDS Day is designated on the 1st of December since the year 1988. This day is dedicated to creating awareness of the deadly disease AIDS which is caused by the HIV infection.
Education about preventing and controlling the infection is spread throughout the world. Government officials, health officials, and non-governmental organizations take part in this.
The day was first made a thing in August 1987 by two public information officers for the Global Program on AIDS at WHO (World Health Organization) in Geneva, Switzerland. The two officers were James W. Bunn & Thomas Netter.
Before we talk about AIDS symptoms, cure & prevention, let's talk about:
AIDS is short for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. It is a life-threatening and chronic disease caused by a virus called the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). This virus attacks the immune system of a human being and ends the ability of the human body to fight diseases.
HIV is spread mostly through four body fluids:
Sexual intercourse or the transfer of infected blood are the major causes of HIV.
One more piece of advice would if you ever notice the symptoms do not take them lightly at all, make an appointment with the doctor as soon as possible and get yourself tested.
