REPORT OF WORLD AIDS DAY 2021

PROGRAME CONDUCTED TO SPREAD AWARENESS ABOUT AIDS

 “Prevention is better than cure; especially when something has no cure”.

There are some diseases that have been borne by the living in this world which has created a ruckus in human history and the struggle to find a permanent cure still exists. AIDS is one such disease. Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome is the name of the disease which is also shortened as AIDS.

AIDS is caused by a virus namely HIV. HIV is an infection that causes cells in the body to become weak, making a person more susceptible to other infections and diseases. Interaction with certain bodily secretions of an HIV-positive individual, most commonly during unprotected intercourse or sharing injection drug equipment spreads the virus.

If HIV is not treated, it can progress to AIDS. HIV cannot be eradicated by the human body, and there is no effective cure. As a result, whether you have AIDS, you will have it for the rest of your life.

Every year, on 1 December, the world commemorates World AIDS Day. People around the world unite to show support for people living with and affected by HIV and to remember those who lost their lives to AIDS.

Forty years since the first AIDS cases were reported, HIV still threatens the world. Today, the world is off track from delivering on the shared commitment to end AIDS by 2030 not because of a lack of knowledge or tools to beat AIDS, but because of structural inequalities that obstruct proven solutions to HIV prevention and treatment.

Since there is no cure to the disease and unequal perception about the disease the NSS UNIT of NHCK celebrated the World AIDS DAY in a small gesture that all the youngsters are aware about What is AIDS? and How it can be prevented?

This move that helped many of the youngsters to be aware was led by our Dr Sunitha HangalDirector – NHCK, Mrs.Sunitha HOD of Commerce department and Principle, and Sir Girish N the coordinator of NSS. We held together all the students and said them to wear a badge in order to support the people who have lost their lives to AIDS and who are living with it. Enormous NSS volunteers, students and teachers showed support and made this program a special and successful one.

Only the light of knowledge about AIDS can rid us from the darkness of fear, misconception and pain. If the treatments work we hope that one day, people infected with HIV will not have to take drugs for the rest of their lives.
