Published / by Aimee / 3 Comments on AIDS Awareness Poster

AIDS Awareness Day is marked not only by memorial events and public manifestations, but also by wearing the red ribbon or bracelet and by printing and promoting AIDS Awareness Posters. The purpose of any poster is to influence the public attitude, to change the behavior of those who see it and make them get more involved. AIDS Awareness Posters are created mainly to give an alarm signal and bring an improvement in AIDS Campaigns.

Posters are created to inform the public of what they can or must to in order to prevent the spreading of a virus and in response to the outbreak of a disease. This principle is valid for AIDS Awareness Posters as well. Each year, a different theme is chosen for these posters, but the message behind the drawings has to be, in the end, the same: it is time for you to do something against AIDS spreading!

There are several AIDS Awareness Posters pinpointed at specific groups. Some of them are more explicit, referring to drugs injections or unprotected sexual relationships, which are known to be the main causes for HIV spreading. But there are also AIDS Awareness Posters containing nothing but the red ribbon symbol, and their main purpose is to put an end to ignorance.

Cautionary posters are great tools of awareness, as they promote prevention and curative measures. In order to receive enough attention, these AIDS Awareness Posters have to keep the balance between aesthetics and communication. Of course the message is very important and has to be clear enough, but if the image is too shocking or abstract, then the purpose of the poster might not be achieved.

As a conclusion, AIDS Awareness Posters aren’t the ones that stop the disease or the virus spreading. This is a certain thing, but they can surely make a difference! Depending on where they are placed, who they impact and how are they done, AIDS Awareness Posters can be great prevention tools in AIDS Campaigns.

HIV Is Ingesting The Globe…!

HIV Is Ingesting The Globe

Thinking of AIDS may come to your mind those countries yawning in paucity and devastation anyhow it should be considered that a cosmic number of HIV victims are growing in developing and developed countries as well. United States of America has the highest rate of Sexually Transmitted Diseases in the developed planet. According to an executive survey In United States of America, about 19 million new infections occur each year.

AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) is simply advanced rather ultimate stage of HIV. HIV acts against our immune system that is our internal defense system called body’s ‘Security Forces’ which fights against viral infections and external attacks of ailment. When our resistant system smashes, we lose fortification against disease and thus develop many serious, often deadly infections and cancers in the company of AIDS. These further disorders are called “opportunistic infections” because they take advantage of the body’s weakened defenses and assault our body structure. As the name suggests these infections crops up by chance but leaving nothing afterward.

It is said that origin of HIV was discovered long time ago but reported in more or less 1999. How pollsters found HIV? Storyaids behind it was that they identified a picky breed of chimpanzee which was inhabitant of West Equatorial Africa as the original source of the HIV. It was inside chimps then how the virus approached human? Most probably the answer to this is when ancient time’s huntsmen were exposed to the tainted blood of those chimpanzees they got HIV in their blood and thus passing on HIV.

We must know that HIV-positive people are more susceptible to acquiring sexually transmitted diseases than HIV-negative people because their immune systems are weakened. And remember that If an HIV-positive person is infected with another Sexually transmitted disease, that person has more chances than other HIV-positive people to transmit HIV through sexual intercourse.

What are you doing on the war against Aids

HIV is not about going to doctor, taking some medicines and here you back to normal, keep in mind there is no “Cure” for HIV but yes there is “Treatment” for it, only effective if HIV is diagnosed at precise time, and yes you still can live with HIV a hale and hearty, vigorous life until and unless your internal defense system keep fighting against HIV. Remember there can also some side effects during treatment.

Common don’t need to be serious enough while reading the post because simply people living with HIV are diagnosed at correct time and go for proper treatment the life is simply in high spirits, healthy, and relation building. What one can do at its best is if you know an HIV infected person near you don’t HATE them! They are just like you, need love and want to be loved, support them, and encourage them to consult towards health concern departments.

Basic problem lies where people living with HIV hesitate to disclose this, naturally because they are afraid of being criticized or detested, they assume that if they gonna tell this thing to their friends and family they will face biased behavior and may be bigotry. In fact this discrimination is due to lack of awareness about HIV, people actually don’t know what is HIV? When HIV is detrimental? How it can be transmitted from one individual to another? These are some questions people really need to know about. People just have a fear of being infected which hinders them to come in contact with those having HIV. Best solution here is simply AWARENESS, talk about HIV, and encourage supporting campaigns, rather be a part of them, don’t be shy to hold an aids awareness banner or RED RIBBON.

Red ribbon…? What is this…?
We are definitely going to talk about RED RIBBON in our next blog! 🙂
