Current trends in HIV: What can we do to combat it?
A Global Effort to Achieve an AIDS-Free World
posted about 8 years ago
"The global effort to combat HIV cannot afford further delays, as the magnitude and impact of the pandemic grow relentlessly. Today, 34 million people live with HIV and 7.6 million people require treatment. We continue to play catch-up. For every one person who starts HIV treatment, two become infected with HIV."
HIV still remains a major issue in our world today. With these alarming statistics, how can our generation become informed and change the trend of HIV diagnoses?
UHS offers free and confidential HIV testing year-round. If you don't know your status, it is extremely easy to find out.
So here's my question:
What barriers do college students face when it comes to being informed about HIV/AIDS?
How can our campus change the way we educate each other about it?
