PREVENTION FOR AIDS
Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome is a highly preventable disease as the modes of transmission can be effectively negated through simple precautions. Sexual intercourse with proper barriers like condoms reduces the transmission of the HIV virus very effectively. Utilizing sterilized needles can prevent transmission through infected needles and people who work in high risk areas like medical personnel and social workers can reduce the risk of getting infected by using proper gloves, masks and protective gears for their eyes. Even a person who has contracted HIV can live a long and healthy life by taking a very effective HAART program.
