She devours everyone in her path: both men and women; and young and old, and beautiful and not very; both rich and poor. But the choice is mainly left to each of us. Everyone has the right to decide for himself: to be healthy and happy, or to die in torment. Any person can avoid HIV infection if he understands the danger that threatens him and is capable of tight self-control.

What is needed for this:

- use a condom;

- do not try drugs;

- be faithful to one sexual partner

Questions for self-control:

1. Is smoking a drug?

2. What is the difference between HIV and AIDS?

3. Are sexually transmitted diseases genetically transmitted?

4. What new developments are used to prevent sexually transmitted diseases?
