There is an ongoing awareness on HIV/AIDS across the world to sensitive people about knowing their status and taking appropriate measures to stay safe.
This viral photo was shared online recently by a family. The woman is HIV+ while the husband and the children are negative to the deadly virus.
The World Health Organization has constantly advised people to regularly check their HIV status for the betterment of their health and future.
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus (a subgroup of retrovirus) that causes HIV infection and over time acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
AIDS is a condition in humans in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic infections and cancers to thrive. Without treatment, average survival time after infection with HIV is estimated to be 9 to 11 years, depending on the HIV subtype.
Infection with HIV occurs by the transfer of blood, pre-ejaculate, semen, vaginal fluids, or breast milk. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells.
