Aids Awareness Programme

 
"What if it Were You?" is a community HIV/AIDS awareness project and youth AIDS poster contest dedicated to promoting every-day awareness, compassion, education and support for HIV/AIDS in Madison, Wisconsin. Not only are we providing AIDS awareness and education to youth in our schools, but we also strive diligently to reduce the social stigmas of HIV/AIDS, while addressing some core issues in the fight against AIDS. Some of the issues we address that drive the epidemic are, racism, homophobia, poverty, domestic violence and addiction. 
 
It is important that youth and adults for that matter, understand the correlation between these issues and HIV/AIDS. We hope that you will take the time to visit our resources page and learn about the various AIDS organizations throughout Wisconsin and in the city of Madison. By visiting their sites, you can get an HIV test, find clean needle exchanges, get facts about HIV/AIDS and STDs, volunteer in the fight against AIDS, donate and so much more. We've even included a few fun National organizations where you can purchase cool products that generate money in the fight against HIV/AIDS throughout the United States and Internationally.
 
INTRODUCTION
 
No other word engenders as much fear, revulsion, despair and utter helplessness as AIDS. It is in facts, rewriting medical history ads humankind’s deadliest scourge, With 40 million deaths forecast in this millennium, statistics tell their own sordid tale. 
 
The first recorded sample of HIV was discovered in 1959 in a blood specimen obtained at Leopoldville (now Kinshasa in) in the Belgian Congo. This was the first known death chalked up by AIDS. The virus is through to have originally affected chimpanzees. The crossover from animals to human may have occurred in the 1950s through an accident or a bite. 
 
Intermittently, other theories of its origins have been advanced. One theory, put forward by Bette Korber, traces the disease to a single viral ancestor that could have emerged between 1910 and 1950. Thorough an analysis done at the Los Alamos National Lab in New Mexico, Korber contends that the pandemic may have come from one or more infected humans around 1930. Pascal argued that the vaccine, which was frown in cultures obtained from chopped up chimpanzee kidneys, may have carried this virus. Polio researcher Dr Albert Sabin had reported that such a batch was contaminated by an unknown virus. In fact, monkeys harbor SIV or simian immunodeficiency virus (SV-40 to be more specific), which is thought to be the ancestor of HIV. The first cases of AIDS were reported in the United States in 1981 amongst male homosexuals in Los Angeles and New York. Within two decades, up to 50 million may have been infected globally, approximately 22 million have succumbed and nearly 15,000 new infections are said to occur daily.                           
What Is Aids & HIV? 
 
HIV has two major categories: HIV-1 and HIV-2, HIV-1, which currently has about 10 subtypes, is most common worldwide and the only form found in the US. HIV-2 is less virulent and though currently confined to West Africa- it is spreading.  The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) basically provokes an infection, which destroys the body’s immune system. And AIDS or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is the advanced stage of this disease, when the immune systems irreparably damaged, engendering multiple infections and cancers. A person is considered HIV positive when s/he tests positive for any of the 26 diseases (Kaposi’s sarcoma, lymphoma, pulmonary tuberculosis, recurrent pneumonia within a 12-month period, wasting syndrome and other indicators) that can easily invade the body during immune system’s non functionality. 
 
On invading the body, the virus specifically attacks T-cells. A core part of the human defense system, they mobilize other cells to seek and destroy contagious foreign elements besides leading the immune system’s fight against infections. T – Cells are targeted because the AIDS virus parasitizes the CD4 molecules on their surface. 
 
Although HIV targets T-cells and other cells in the body, it thrives mainly in the lymph nodes another important part of the immune system. Each lymph node has a netlike structure inside it that acts as a protective filter by trapping virus and infected T – cells. But as health T-cells move through contaminated lymph nodes, they are infected by HIV. Particularly during the early stage  of the disease, lymph nodes contain more infected cells than the blood.
 
Symptoms
 
In the early stages, a mild flu and swollen glands are typical. But the symptoms are often unmistakable when full-blown AIDS develops. Loss of appetite, weight loss, constant fever prolonged fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, changing bowel patterns, swollen, chills coupled with excessive sweating, especially at night, lesions in the mouth, sore throat, persistent cough, shortness of breath, tumors, skin rashes, headaches, memory lapses, swelling in the joints, pain in various parts of the body, vision problems and a regular feeling of lethargy and it health make up the litany of symptoms.  
 
Modes of Transmission 
 
HIV is transmitted primarily by sex (anal, vaginal or oral with an infected), by injections sharing contaminated needles for drug use or accidental piercing with a contaminated needle).  Or from infected mother to child through pregnancy or breast – feeding.  Infected semen and vaginal fluids, infected blood and blood products lead to the transmission of HIV. Drug abuse with unsterilized needles is another high – risk activity. Unprotected sex with multiple partners is the primary cause of infected. 
 
During unprotected sex, the infected fluid could enter the bloodstream through a tiny cut or a sore. Anal penetration has a higher risk of transmission, which is why a high percentage of homosexuals develop the disease. Bleeding during sex also raises the chances of infection. Therefore unprotected sex during menstrual period and anal intercourse are best avoided. Some HIV – infected patients progress to AIDS quickly while others can remain healthy for 10 years or more. Between  initial and full – blown disease, a middle phase called symptomatic HIV infection, or AIDS – related  complex (ARC), occurs, prompting symptoms such as weight loss, diarrhea, and swollen lymph glands.
