HIV / AIDS WORLD DAY 01 DECEMBER 2015
According to UNAIDS, HIV/AIDS has claimed more than 33 million lives since 1990. In that same time frame, we’ve seen the number of people dying from AIDS peak and then gradually go down. That can be credited to a myriad of things from advances in medicine and research to an increase in condom usage.
But education about the HIV/AIDS is probably the most important. And though more information has become more readily available, some misinformation is out there as well.
HIV is transferred through fluids like blood, semen and breast milk. Those fluids can travel through mucous membranes during sex, or right into the bloodstream through needles or syringes.
One of the most confusing myths still out there is that you can transmit HIV through kissing, which, according to the UK’s National AIDS Trust, 16 percent of people still believe.
