AIDS in Russia

According to forecasts, in 2015 in Russia there will be 400-500 thousand HIV-infected, among which the most common age category is 25-30 years old. Russia risks losing an entire generation of citizens.

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome has become one of the characteristic features of our time. No matter how much they promised to find a vaccine against this deadly virus, they did not find it. AIDS is still dying, more and more every year. In modern conditions, the epidemic has taken on an international character. No country in the world can boast that this disaster has passed.

Sad statistics show that in Russia the disease is spreading at an unprecedented pace in world practice: every minute 6 young people become infected with the immunodeficiency virus. The average life expectancy of AIDS patients is 12 years. Add to this that the healing methods that are practiced around the world are inaccessible in our country.

The main foci of infection are Moscow and the Moscow region. A significant increase in the incidence rate was also noted in St. Petersburg, Irkutsk, Tyumen, Perm, Ryazan regions.

Despite the fact that nowadays everyone can become infected with AIDS, the disease has its “favorites” - risk groups. These groups have not changed since the onset of the disease - people of easy virtue, drug addicts, homosexuals. This choice is explained, first of all, by the means of AIDS transmission - through the blood and seminal glands.
The virus is transmitted through sexual contact with an HIV-infected person, through a common syringe, blood transfusion from an infected donor, from a sick mother to the fetus.

The main risk factor for HIV infection in Russia remains intravenous drug administration (90%). Moreover, among drug addicts, HIV spreads not only through a common syringe, but also through the drug itself, if it is used in liquid form.

Admittedly, AIDS, of course, is not a literal plague, and, thanks to God, is not transmitted by airborne droplets. In the saliva, sweat, urine and tears, there is too little virus - it is not enough for infection. Numerous studies have shown that not a single person

infected through a kiss. AIDS is not transmitted through household contact.

Working or living together with infected people is not associated with any danger. Do not shake with fear when traveling in transport, swimming in pools, visiting public places, using common utensils, shaking hands, touching, hugging. The virus is not transmitted through the air: coughing and sneezing, bites of blood-sucking insects are not dangerous.

Thus, methods for transmitting the virus are limited, but over time, the boundaries of the risk group are blurred. In order not to be cornered, it is important to think about prevention, given that the effectiveness of AIDS treatment is almost zero. In any case, it is unrealistic to completely protect yourself, it is only possible to reduce the risk of infection.

    Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a viral, slow-running infection caused by the human immunodeficiency retrovirus, transmitted sexually, parenterally and vertically, characterized by a specific predominant lesion of helper T-lymphocytes, leading to the development of a secondary immunodeficiency state. Clinical diagnosis Incubation period from

    AIDS is an acquired immune deficiency syndrome, a viral disease characterized by damage to the body’s immune system and a diverse clinical picture associated with the development of infectious and tumor processes. The causative agent of the disease is the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which has the unique ability to penetrate the nuclei of human cells and integrate into their chromosomal DNA.

    If the patient has any general symptoms or signs of AIDS without additional infections or tumors that occur in the late stages of the disease, then this condition is described as an AIDS-associated complex.

  14. What is AIDS?
    AIDS - acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, a disease that is caused by a special microorganism - the human immunodeficiency virus. The virus enters the human body and gets into the blood cells, which in a healthy person are called to fight the infection - into lymphocytes (T-lymphocytes). The virus begins to multiply in these cells, and when it multiplies, the cell gradually dies.
