World’s AIDs day 2021

HIV affects millions of people worldwide every year and is a major public health concern. HIV aims and contaminates the CD4 cells in immune system of a person’s body which protects him/her from germs and illnesses. HIV causes AIDS by attacking the CD4 cells, which the defense system uses to protect the body from ailments. Lack of awareness on precautionary measures and limited access to healthcare facilities are a major contributor to increasingly HIV mortalities.
In 2020, 680,000 people died because of HIV related causes and 37,700,000 estimated number of people were found living with HIV. Moreover 1,500,000 people were newly infected with this virus in the same year. World AIDS Day is observed every year on 1st December since 1988. This day is well thought-out as an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to remember those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.
On the occasion of World AIDS Day, we must not forget that with our support and love, we can help many patients with AIDS feel a lot better. They are already suffering from AIDS, don’t make them suffer with your behavior. As long as it’s about HIV, hate the disease but not the diseased. Spread awareness, not ignorance. Together we must work hard to put an end to this disease and have a beautiful tomorrow.
