World Aids Day - Curb Its Spread and Become More Aware

By: Tom Chuong

World over Aids Days was celebrated during last week with much pomp. It was a celebration, indeed, to make more and more people aware of the dreadful mass disease. With so many people becoming AIDS victims, researchers from across the world are busy engaged in experiments for coming out with innovative methods to prevent AIDS disease, notwithstanding is the efforts of drug researchers to come out with sophisticated drugs that can combat the virus efficiently.

World Aids Day has been observed as AIDS Education day, sharing of knowledge, and prevention to millions of people.

AIDS Education was given to thousands of sex workers at several places across the world. Safe sex practices were advocated to see that AIDS is checked at the source point itself.

This free information was also given to hard/drug addicts, who are a very high risk group for the disease. They were told of the mantra 'one needle/one time/one man' and educated of the use of disposable syringes and/or autoclaved needles.

Furthermore, health education was given to healthcare practitioners who continually engage with AIDS patients. The importance of careful disposal of contaminated body fluids such as blood, semen, vaginal secretions, amniotic, peritoneal and pleural fluids, was emphasized and strict compliance with standard disposal measures were advocated to them.

Education and awareness itself can help in with the prevention of this deadly disease. Next time when you confront an AIDS patient you know to be compassionate with him and you also know how to handle him.
