Despite popular credit, the war has not passed AIDS. Given one of the worst health emergencies in the century, he said that there was a height of life of 41,920 people in 1993. By 1999, nearly 700,000 lives had been protected by a & # 39; virus.
With the introduction of co-ordination plans and more scientific research, AIDS is no longer a death sentence. There are more people who get a test, and fewer people go to AIDS and die from it. As a result, people began to think that the disease was abolished from the United States, but research statistics were against it.
According to a report published in July 2018 by the World Health Organization, 36 million people are currently living with illness in the United States only and almost one million people have lost it, last year. Most importantly, disease rates are back up and are particularly high within Afraga Afraga and Latino LGBTQ community.
Even in today's world, both the disease and the care they need are both kept very much. But what things people do not understand, the refusal to be & # 39; usually affect the illness which means a lack of security for those who are on the disease and lack of quality care. By explaining the difficulty and its # 39; refusing to provide high quality care than the cause of the disease is from the outset and usually another one happens. The key to completing AIDS lies with higher structured interventions, appropriate funding for Ryan's White Care Act and educational efforts to remove the stigma surrounding the illness.
Since the disease was made in the 1980s and 1990s, stigma has been a major obstacle to access universal treatment and support. According to Jonathan Mann, who was the Global World Health Organization (WHO) Program on Syndrome Immunodeficiency Syndrome, the "third disease" stigma. He saw "stigma, discrimination, crime and conviction. "The most difficult things to deal with, but were essential in halting HIV distribution and reducing the effects of illness on people half, families and communities. "
Research has shown "Stigma and discrimination are scared, which is also linked to fear of violence, and urges people living with HIV from publishing their status even to family members and to sexual partners, and influence their ability and willingness to access treatment. "
In a project carried out by Horizons and USAID and the International Center for the Inquiry into Women, four distinct stigmatics were identified:
- Fear unhappy of an accident
- Negative judgments about people living with HIV
- Stop stigma or discrimination
- Kind stigma
The most common stigma reduction interventions aim to change attitudes, behavior, and knowledge of individual levels.
The second obstacle to accessing and general administrative support is not willing to provide adequate funding for research and treatment. Almost 20 years after its first disease, we repeat a & # 39; look at administration and citizenship that proves themselves willing to accept people who need it. Because people do not now die in large numbers, many believe that the war has passed AIDS and there is no reason to keep money in money. This same atmosphere, together with human homophobia, has also come back to our government.
Trump administration, in the fiscal year of 2017-2018, was & # 39; recommend funding cuts for HIV / AIDS research and funding. The administration recommended cut-off HIV CDC programs with $ 149 million, STD CDC prevention programs with $ 27 million, and eliminate Ryan White programs AIDS Education and Training (AETC) and National Signal Projects (SPNS) programs. Trump also proposes to abolish the Enterprise Fund Minister AIDS Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), and Reduction of funding for Anti-Abuse Abuse Initiative and Mental Health Services programs (SAMHSA) programs, and eliminating the housing opportunities for people with AIDS (HOPWA) program for Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with $ 26 million.
These key budgets have a potential impact on the overall health of the country. If the overall goal is to reduce current levels of disease growth and finally eliminate the virus together, and it can not be cut off. Smaller funding may result in poor spike in drug prices. As such, PrEP and PEP are expensive for those with and without insurance. But without sufficient funding, the prices increase significantly, make it more difficult for people to access them. Therefore, the best way to protect those with the illness is to protect the Ryan White Care Act.
Presented by the conference on August 8, 1990 by Transport, the AIDS Resource Emergency Act Ryan White (CARE) is the most funded and rationalized program designed for those who is live with AIDS. The name was named after Ryan White, a Kokomo teenager, Indiana, who was carrying out her & her; virus from a polished needle when it was the treatment of hemophilia.
The CARE Act provides the ones that are responsible Living with the virus with a broad care framework, and # 39; including key medical care and support services. Most of the money from the activity is directed to provide medical and primary school support for non-insurance and insurance. But there is money too directed "Technical support, clinical training, and the development of innovative care models."
In fact there will be a day where both viruses are away and no one will die again. But it's the only way to get there by paying attention to the extremely high levels of HIV and AID. There is no place in a complaint in the management of any disease, notably a man who has lived almost 700,000 people. It is a complaint that causes their first disease, and may be the result of the next one. We need to be proactive in addressing the & # 39; This virus and maintaining pressure on current management to increase funding into research. Finally, we need to raise awareness of the disease and launch educational programs to remove the surrounding stigma.
