HIV/AIDS Day 01 December 2010

 

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection, attacks the immune system. It eventually causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). First is recognised in the United States in 1981. AIDS increases the risk of many infections and tumours.

Transmission of HIV is through sex, using infected needles and in the womb. Infected children are not shown here. HIV/AIDS often has an acquired social stigma. Almost 39 million people around the world are living with HIV – slightly more than the population of Poland. Nearly two – thirds of them live in Sub-Sahara Africa.The global HIV/Aids epidemic killed 2.8 million peoplein 2005. But there was evidence that the number of new cases had stabilised for the first time in 25 years. Our Mission as Young youth we have to fight against this pandemic, through new researches, new discoverie, new studies, new information we will find the way to stop it and to spread the consequences of it because everytime and everywhere, there’s always something happening in the world of HIV which we live.

However it was HIV week ; we had Stand, christmass tree decorated in HIV Red Ribbon in order to wish them merry christmass and different booklets included the information about HIV, symptoms, consequences, protection,treatment.. and we handed out with condoms to persons over 16year and chocolat to kids. It was so funny to see the reaction after reading message on our tee-shirt “Jeg har HIV, tør du klemme meg?” means “I have HIV, could you give me hug?” they was afraid but the second message behind tee-shirt contradicted the first on, ” I have not HIV” it’was way to know how you could get HIV and How you have to pay attention. The day was wonderful and we had be able to disperse the message and got more who was curious of what happens.
