HIV TESTING

THE IMPORTANCE OF TESTING
As we are all aware HIV and AIDS is a worldwide epidemic. An epidemic that is affecting both homosexuals and heterosexuals alike.
These viruses are no longer only sexually transmitted, but also through medical procedures such as blood transfusions making it even more important to know your current HIV status.
Today, donating blood is a charitable action of which many people take part in, and knowing ones status in this situation is very important if we are to combat the spread of this virus effectively on every level.
Having no known cure for this virus it is our duty to take such precautions as practicing safe sex not only with casual, but also with our life partners. Since no partnership is guaranteed forever we must protect the “now” in order to protect the future.
Another precaution is to get tested regularly as this is the only true way to know your status. Also, if at all possible have knowledge of your sexual partner’s HIV status.
Following even one of these precautions will assist in stopping the spread of the HIV and AIDS virus.
As it stands per amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research:
Statistics: Worldwide
 More than 34 million people now live with HIV/AIDS.
 3.3 million of them are under the age of 15.
 In 2011, an estimated 2.5 million people were newly infected with HIV.
 330,000 were under the age of 15.
 Every day nearly 7,000 people contract HIV—nearly 300 every hour.
 In 2011, 1.7 million people died from AIDS.
 230,000 of them were under the age of 15.
 Since the beginning of the epidemic, more than 60 million people have contracted HIV and nearly 30 million have died of HIV-related causes.

Just think of how much can be accomplished by doing so little.
As repetitive as it is written in this article, I implore you to make your actions just as repetitious.
BE SAFE!!! GET TESTED!!! BECOME AN IMPORTANT PART OF A BETTER FUTURE.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER AND TO KNOW IS TO LIVE!
