Re: HIV Awarrness

HIV/AIDS continues to be a major health issue in the African population. 41% of total deaths are due to HIV/AIDS in South Africa alone. I agree with the fact that education is important to address the magnitude of this issue. Safe sex is a major concern that is causing the number of new infections reported to remain over 2 million. Implementing safe sex education programs and delivering antiretroviral medication to developing regions are two of the main focuses that millennium development goal #6 focuses on.

HIV awareness can help decrease the number of new cases each year. There are currently 35 million people living with HIV and tens of millions of people having dies from AIDS related causes. 68% of the cases are from Africa (Kaiser Family Foundation, 2014). We can decrease this number by bring in awareness campaigns to address this epidemic. HIV prevalence has been estimated to be 19 times higher with men having sex with men and 28 times higher among injection drug users (Kaiser Family Foundation, 2014). Although safe injection site are controversial we need to consider the amount of money being sent on HIV/AIDS yearly. By setting up these sites we can potentially decrease the amount of new cases of AID yearly.
