Map of HIV/AIDS PANDEMIC Once there was this organization which came to our Neighbourhood to help some of the people who were from a disease which is HIV/AIDS. They told them about the new medicine that one is surposed to take in order for you to continue living which is the ARVs. this actually stands for Antiritroviral Syndrome. Above all they encouraged those who were discouraged by telling them that it's not the end of life. One can stay for long with this disease without anybody knowing. Some of the diseased felt happy and not forgotten. In as much as they taught the diseased on how to maintain their health they also cautioned others about the disease. They told us that we should avoid doing sexual intercourse outside marriage cause HIV/AIDS is spreading highly through this practise. We were all happy for what the organisation had done by helping the diseased and also teaching us more about this tremendous disease. The diseased were happy of realising that there is medicine which can help them continue living and staying healthy without people knowing. Read more.
