Ltd realizes its role to spread awareness about this deadly disease by creating awareness and also by offering a special special discount for HIV/AIDS screening from 1st to 7th December, 2014.
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) causes AIDS, which weakens immune system by destroying white blood cells. This results in failure to fight disease and infections. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a killer disease. This disease has particularly caused serious health, Psychological, economical and social problems in the developing, developed and underdeveloped world.
While there have been strides in the diagnostics, prevention and cure of HIV, a lot still needs to be done in this
regard. HIV transmission mainly occurs through infected blood products and bodily secretion in unprotected sex. Other common means of HIV spread are via contaminated equipment, syringes, needles, razors sharing in I.V. Drug abusers, ear/nose piercing & tattooing, etc. Infected mother can transmit HIV to child during pregnancy, delivery and breast feeding. The disease does not spread by contact, or touching.
After exposure to HIV, initially a person may experience brief periods of influenza-like illness progressing in severity.
HIV infected people in advanced stage suffer from constellation of symptoms/syndrome known as Acquired immune Deficiency syndrome (AIDS). The patient may experience rapid weight loss, recurring fever, night sweats, tiredness, prolonged swelling of the lymph glands in the armpits, groins or neck, diarrhea that lasts for more than a week, mouth sores, pneumonia, red, brown, pink blotches on or under the skin or inside the moth, nose and eyelids, memory loss, depression, various skin malignancies, and neurological with psychological disorders. Many HIV positive people initially do not experience any symptoms till they progress towards AIDS. Prevention from HIV is only possible through spreading awareness about this deadly disease, how it transmits, how it can be diagnosed at early stage and timely treatment if contracted.
