What It’s Like To Live With HIV At 35: Research Says Youth Doesn’t Care Anymore
As soon as the HIV cases have gone to a hundred, Dr. Louis Katz stopped counting the HIV patients he treated in the 1980s and '90s. Although indirectly, it was found that antiretroviral drugs now allow people with the human immunodeficiency virus to live longer. However, a new proposition of Dr. Katz says that they may actually be adding up to an even greater misunderstanding of the drug and its use.
Research To HIV Cases: What Does It Imply?
In one of his statements reported by Quad City Times, Dr. Katz, an infectious disease specialist who directed a Quad-City clinic for years has revealed that there is a clear evidence of a relapse of high-risk behavior. He explains that it's certainly the same kind of behavior, like promiscuity and needle sharing, that was associated with the initial explosion of AIDS.
Furthermore, as per Daytona Times, thirty-five years ago, testing HIV positive was an automatic death sentence, but today, because of targeted HIV prevention efforts, rapid testing, advances in treatment and increased access to life-saving health care, what was once a death sentence is now, in many cases, a chronic disease that can be lived with and managed. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recently revealed that today, more than 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV.
Meanwhile, advocates like Battis, director of grants and services for the non-profit organization, which started 31 years ago as the Quad-Cities AIDS Project, has been found to urge the public to get tested since the human immunodeficiency virus attacks the immune system and weakens it to the extent that the infection can progress into AIDS, or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. However, the ironic thing as what Battis said is that people don't want to talk about STDs or HIV. Pregnancy they're all about. But it's very difficult to talk about HIV. According to research, youngsters think they don't have that problem in their school system. Ultimately, experts suggest to be protective of ourselves and reduce the risk of spreading HIV, or any STD, by getting tested and knowing the real status. We must all commit to keeping our communities healthy.
