STD Prevention Videos, STI Support Advice, VD Symptoms In Home Tests

Research has revealed a great deal of valuable medical, scientific, and public health information about the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The ways in which HIV immunodeficiency disease can be transmitted have been clearly identified.

Unfortunately, false information or statements that are not supported by positive scientific findings continue to be shared widely through the Internet or popular press.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has prepared a fact sheet to correct a few misconceptions about HIV.

Scientists are learning about preserving the immune system and marshaling the body’s natural defenses against HIV to keep infected people from progressing to AIDS. Today there are medicines that can slow down the rate at which HIV weakens the immune system.

There are other treatments that can prevent or cure some of the illnesses associated with AIDS. As with other contagious diseases, early detection offers more options for treatment therapy and preventative care.
