The most important thing anyone can do about the AIDS and HIV epidemic is to educate themselves and others.  Education is helpful because it can dispel a lot of the myths that hold people back.

AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. AIDS is a serious condition that weakens the body’s immune system, leaving it unable to fight off illness.

People who had AIDS or HIV were often feared and ostracized for no really good reason.  Over the years though, this has slowly changed.

People have lots of questions about the ways you can get HIV. HIV is transmitted in blood, semen, vaginal fluids, and breast milk.

In general, people will begin to notice the following HIV symptoms in the months (or years) preceding the onset of AIDS:

  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Short-term memory loss
  • White spots on the tongue or mouth
  • Flaky skin and/or persistent rashes
  • Frequent/persistent yeast infections
  • A fever that lasts a long time
  • Frequent fevers or sickness (shingles)
  • For women, untreatable pelvic inflammatory disease
  • For children, stunted growth
