10 Most Deadly and Embarrassing STDs and STIs

Having STDs and STIs is embarrassing. While most infections are not lethal, it is fairly inconvenient to have one. To deal with the scratching blisters and being totally undesirable as a sex partner, does not feel good at all. STDs/STIs may sound harmless at first but if you resort to “waiting it out”, it can lead […]

What is AIDS

What is AIDS

People have been warned about HIV and AIDS for over twenty years now. AIDS has already killed millions of people, millions more continue to become infected with HIV, and there’s no cure – so AIDS will be around for a while yet. AIDS is one of the biggest problems facing the world today and nobody […]

HIV, AIDS and School

Across the world, schools play a major role in shaping the attitudes, opinions and (perhaps most importantly) the behaviour of young people. Today’s generation of school children have been born into a world where AIDS is a harsh, unavoidable reality – a situation that their time at school can help them to prepare for. As […]

Introduction to the AIDS epidemic

<p> The history of AIDS is a short one. As recently as the 1970s, no one was aware of this deadly illness. Since then the global AIDS epidemic has become one of the greatest threats to human health and development. At the same time, much has been learnt about the science of AIDS, as well […]

Teaching about HIV – AIDS at School

Basic AIDS education remains fundamental to the global effort to prevent HIV transmission. AIDS education can – and does – target all ages, and sexually active adults are one principal target. AIDS education is also vitally important for young people and the school offers a crucial point-of-contact for their receiving this education. Providing AIDS education […]

Why HIV – AIDS Education

Each year there are more and more new HIV infections, which shows that people either aren’t learning the message about the dangers of HIV, or are unable or unwilling to act on it. Many people are dangerously ignorant about the virus, with surveys around the world showing alarmingly low levels of awareness and understanding about […]

Young Gay Men Talking – Sex & AIDS

Sex education in schools tends to focus on pregnancy and reproduction, and sometimes looks at HIV and STD prevention. Information about being gay doesn’t seem to be very common in sex education classes, which leads to misunderstandings rather than knowledge. Ignorance can end up as fear, prejudice and risky behaviour. A recent survey in the […]

AIDS: Around the world

When AIDS first emerged, no-one could have predicted how the epidemic would spread across the world and how many millions of lives it would change. There was no real idea what caused it and consequently no real idea how to protect against it. Now we know from bitter experience that AIDS is caused by the […]

AIDS Education and HIV Positive People

When people talk about AIDS education, they usually have in mind education that is provided to people who are not yet infected with HIV – often young people – to help them stay uninfected. While this is clearly important, it is also vital that people who are already living with HIV receive AIDS education. This […]

AIDS: Education and Young People

Why is AIDS education important for young people? The HIV epidemic has been spreading steadily for the past two decades, and now affects every country in the world. Each year, more people die and the number of people living with HIV continues to rise – in spite of the fact that we have developed many […]

AIDS: Sex and Teens

What’s the big deal about HIV/AIDS? It’s easy to think that AIDS is something for other people to worry about – gay people, drug users, people who sleep around. This is wrong – all teens, whoever they are, wherever they live need to take the threat of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, seriously. To […]

HIV & AIDS

What Is It? AIDS is one of the most serious, deadly diseases in human history. More than 20 years ago, doctors in the United States identified the first cases of AIDS in San Francisco and New York. Now there are an estimated 42 million people living with HIV or AIDS worldwide, and more than 3 […]
