HIV is found in body fluids of an infected person (semen and vaginal fluids, blood and breast milk). This virus is transmitted from person to person through blood to blood and sexual contact. In addition, pregnant women transmit HIV to their babies during pregnancy, during delivery, and through breastfeeding.
Every day, we have a large number of comments and messages from visitors regarding how to prevent pregnancy, most of them are girls, all of these people who had sex without using contraceptives are worried about their pregnancy, but none of them are worried that they may have AIDS. become Even these people are not worried about sexually transmitted diseases.
What we know about AIDS:
We know what the AIDS virus is and how it is transmitted.
We know what to do for prevention.
We know how to track and identify this virus.
We know how to support infected people.
We know: the available drugs reduce the rapid spread of this disease and only have the role of control
But we still do not know what is the final and definitive treatment of this disease?
first step : What is the cause of the AIDS virus? And what is its function?
The virus that causes HIV disease, as soon as this virus enters the body’s organism, it attacks the white blood cells that play the role of the body’s defense and protect us from diseases, and they begin to multiply very quickly. Little by little, they destroy all the strength and endurance of the body, so that the patient may die only from a simple disease such as a cold. Therefore, the virus itself does not cause the death of the patient, but by weakening the immune system of the infected person, it causes death.
But we must remember that this virus is very weak and can only survive in certain conditions, but when the virus enters the human body, it will turn into an uncontrollable monster that will kill its host over a period of time (dependency). It will stop the progression of the disease and the use of drugs that increase the virus.
Second step: Infectious transformations by viruses
After a person is infected by the AIDS virus, years can pass without symptoms and during this period the disease does not appear, but after we realize that we are infected with the virus, it is very important to be monitored by a specialist or a doctor. to be placed and use special medicines.
In fact, today we do not know the final cure for AIDS, the drugs only slow down the progress of the disease, and by stopping the drug, the disease will show itself again and start progressing rapidly and attacking.
After we got this disease! If we do not follow the principles of prevention, we can transmit the virus to others. Transmission can create the same situation for another person even if the sick person has no symptoms of the disease.
The third step: The ways of transmission of the AIDS virus can be during an unprotected sexual intercourse (control tools such as condoms) or through the blood of an infected person.
1) During sexual intercourse without a condom:
A man infected with the virus can transmit the disease to a woman. A woman infected with the virus can transmit the disease to a man. A man infected with the virus can transmit the disease to a man.
2) During the use of a syringe or a needle that was previously used by an infected person
It is a means of transferring the infected blood left in the syringe or needle to another person, and if we use the syringe, we become infected with the virus. Even all the tools (knives, razors…) that cause injury and contact with infected blood They can be a means to transmit disease to other people!
3) The virus can be transmitted to the child through an infected mother during pregnancy or breastfeeding or childbirth
Therefore, the ways of ending are limited and controllable
1) Is there a possibility of contagion in a work environment with a person infected with AIDS?
In a work environment such as the office or in different parts of the society, daily activities such as shaking hands or kissing or hugging or talking closely…. It is not contagious, so our behavior with an infected person should be consistent with that of a person. be healthy

So don’t worry and go to the pool with your friend

3) Do insects like mosquitoes transmit this disease?
Fortunately, the insect never injects blood into another person’s body because of sucking, it only sucks the blood. So far, no case of disease transmission by mosquitoes has been reported.
4) Is there a possibility of AIDS transmission from an infected person to a healthy person in salons and hairdressing salons?
Unfortunately, the risk of transmission of the AIDS virus in these places is very high if hygiene tips are not followed, that’s why it is necessary for each person to have their own hairdressing equipment and take it with them to the barber shop every time they go to the barber shop. that the hairdresser does not sterilize tools such as razors or combs or puss, teach him how to do these hygiene practices. And if you see that person without any sense of responsibility, he continues his work as before, at the first opportunity, put the health center in charge of this matter, but remember to go to a hairdressing salon that gives sufficient assurance of compliance with hygiene points.
5) What should we do if an infected person is injured?
