One child is infected with HIV every 100 seconds, 60% of treatment stops in the coronary period

World AIDS Day: One child is infected with HIV every 100 seconds, 60% of treatment stops in the coronary period





There are 23.49 lakh people living with HIV in the country, with Maharashtra having the highest number of cases
Pregnant women and those who have a positive partner should get tested for HIV



The United Nations reports that 1 child is infected with HIV every 100 seconds. Last year, 3.20 lakh children and teenagers became infected with HIV worldwide. Of these, 1.10 lakh children died. Treatment of HIV patients during the coronary period was adversely affected. Patients could not be treated regularly. Today is World AIDS Day. On this occasion, let us know what was the effect on HIV patients during Corona period ....

Challenges of corona and HIV patients, 4 talk
1. 40% reduction in treatment and testing
According to the United Nations, the treatment and testing of children infected with HIV, the human immunodeficiency virus, decreased by 60% during the corona period. Anti-retroviral therapy is also not given to 50% of patients. Testing of children also decreased by 10%. These figures are far from the 2020 target.

2. 73% of countries say stocks of drugs are about to run out
According to the WHO, life-saving drugs for AIDS cannot reach patients because of the corona. A WHO survey says 73 countries have said they will run out of life-saving stocks due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. Twenty-four countries have said that AIDS drugs are in short supply or that supply is being disrupted.

3. Worst Time Lockdown
HIV patients have had the most trouble with lockdown. OPD and other centers were closed in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. Aman (name has been changed) from Mumbai went to the ART center to take medicines in the lockdown, but on the way he was stopped and told to return home. The situation remained the same in many cities of the country. Then, if the government allowed them to take medicines, the transport would be disrupted and the patients would be deprived of medicines.

4. Fear in patients
HIV patients still need to take medication every day, otherwise the virus may become active again. Patients are given anti-retroviral therapy drugs. There are 3 lines of anti-retroviral therapy drugs. If somehow the first line of drugs gets stuck, the second line has to be started. Second line medicine is not available in every hospital. So patients are in danger.

The difference of 3 lines of anti-retroviral drugs can be understood in this way. HIV patients are initially treated with line-1 drugs. Namely the first stage. When the effect of these drugs seems to be less, the doctors prescribe line-2 i.e. second stage drugs. Doctors shift to Line-3 when the effect of Line-2 drugs also begins to diminish.

The highest number of HIV cases is in Maharashtra and the lowest in Arunachal Pradesh



According to the National AIDS Control Organization, 23.49 million people in the country are infected with HIV. The highest number of 3.96 lakh patients is in Maharashtra. The lowest is less than 1 thousand in Arunachal Pradesh.



Don't get confused about AIDS and HIV, understand the difference this way

According to WebMD, the most trusted website in the medical field, AIDS is triggered by the human immunodeficiency virus. The virus is spread through unprotected sex, infected needles or blood. If HIV is not treated, AIDS occurs. AIDS is the most dangerous stage of HIV.



HIV gradually weakens the immune system. A person who is infected with HIV does not necessarily get AIDS. The stage of HIV infection AIDS can be prevented if continuous treatment is done.

When to get
tested for HIV People who have a partner who is HIV positive should get tested. Apart from this, pregnant women and people who have frequent infections should be tested. If the pregnant mother is infected with HIV, proper treatment can prevent the infection in the baby.
