Aids health education

Common Questions and Answers about Aids health education


Avatar f tn Substantial amounts of infected blood or secretions have to be introduced into the body in a way that exposes certain cells to the virus. If HIV could be transmitted in the ways you are worrying about, AIDS would be 100 times more common than it is and would not be classified as an STD.
Avatar m tn Nothing really new in this little study ,other than the importance for understanding and compassion ,combined with the need for education by the health care community,patients and the public alike about HCV. The stigmatising is still the greatest barrier.. .http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar n tn I work in a health care setting and some aids tained normal saline iv fluid spilled on my ungloved hands. Myproblem is my nail cuticles were dried and cracked. I washed my hands asap with hot water and soap then with alcohol based foam. The alcohol foam didn't burn so i'm hoping no areas were open wounds. What are the chances I have contracted aids.
9067885 tn?1415002692 So I have been seeing so many girls get bashed for asking dumb sex questions. The only problem is, maybe those questions aren't dumb to them. Maybe they haven't had the same access to sexual education as the rest of us. Maybe their parents didn't want them to learn so what might sound naive to us could be them trying to learn and make smart decisions. I get it, it definitely is annoying seeing these posts in this particular forum but there are several options left to us mommys. 1.
Avatar n tn , the virus that causes AIDS. That is at best a start on easing the severe shortage of health care workers in the developing world, which some estimates peg in the millions. Other donor nations will need to contribute to the training effort as well. The most troublesome ideological constraint on the program — a requirement that one-third of the funds used for prevention services be spent on abstinence education — has been greatly eased.
Avatar f tn This is when you project worry onto things that you are told are not real health threats and begin to see a catastrophe to your health. If this is the case for you, I would look into getting some help for that. Sharing a razor is not going to transmit the virus because air inactivates it. NO RISK.
Avatar n tn Although, the lady said she had 7 years experience in teaching hiv/aids education. I chose to ask Teak if it was accurate and conclusive. The key here is not that I am paranoid or ignorant. I hope someone more knowledgeable and experienced with hiv/aids such as Teak would reply. However, when I asked Teak specifically I have not heard from him. Instead I get a response from a 16 year old boy who answers for Teak. Is it too much to ask for an answer? What have I done wrong?
Avatar m tn hello im looking here about the post the guy made : I had what I would call, dry sex. I had my cordoroid shorts on and a the women had her underwear on. She was on the top and rubing. I my shorts on and no underwear on and I was rubbing as well. When she had her orgasm, she is a women who shoots out her vaginal *** or whatever you want to call it when she has a orgasim, that was a first time I have ever seen that.
Avatar f tn In highschool it was a rehash of grade 7/8 with a LITTLE more teaching about condoms etc (we had a nurse from the local health unit in everyday for everything from minor health concerns, to pregnancy tests and everything in-between) we got the putting a condom on a banana/cucumber demonstration. It wasn't until grade 11 when I took the parenting class (the one with the fake baby) that I actually learned about the pill, patch, iud etc.

Avatar f tn My mother, and my siblings have the same problem. I am stone deaf since last 11 years. I use hearing aids. They are not satisfactory as natural hearing.I understand tinnitus may lead to deafness.So pursue the treatment till he is ok.
393685 tn?1425812522 With respect to HIPAA, even where student health records maintained by a health care provider are not education records protected by FERPA, the HIPAA Privacy Rule would apply to such records only if the provider conducts one or more of the HIPAA transactions electronically, e.g., billing a health plan electronically for his or her services, making the provider a HIPAA covered entity. Schools' Treatment Records Disclosed to Hospitals or Physicians.
Avatar f tn Could this be signs of std,HIv, or aids?
Avatar f tn White discharge can happen for any number of reasons at any given time in a female's body. However if you're having unprotected sex and you've not been checked, you can never rule out an STD. Before you engage in sexual intercourse with someone you should ALWAYS find out their status. People have no reason to ever be honest to you--if they are and say they have herpes or AIDS you likely won't have sex with them.
Avatar m tn Hey , I had dry sex (sex on clothes he was with panties and im with panties and pants ) and i see that their panties sometimes are wet from their penis and i scared that it could make AIDS transfer to me I asked a doctor he said its cant but here i saw the doctors answer to someone who asked similiar question : heres the guy question : I had what I would call, dry sex. I had my cordoroid shorts on and a the women had her underwear on. She was on the top and rubing.
Avatar m tn m quite sure in a sophisticated and urbane city like Edinborough, you would be able to find as much HIV education as you want. And education about HIV/AIDS not only stops the spread of the disease, it stops the FEAR of this incredibly difficult virus to contract. If you have further questions about how to obtain HIV eduation or locate sources, I'll be more than happy to help. But no more "what if" questions, OK? You NEVER had a risk. NEVER!
1530342 tn?1405016490 Dec 1st marked the 25th anniversary of World AIDS Day, a time when the president urges Americans to come together in support of those affected by HIV/AIDS, and continue the commitment to a world free from the disease. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton echoed President Obama’s views. “We have set the goal,” she said. “We know it is possible. Now we have to deliver.” How optimistic should we be about efforts to combat HIV/AIDS? http://tv.msnbc.
Avatar n tn Just for my own education, what is the usual timeline of HIV symptoms? I hear it takes about 10 years to get to AIDS, but would symptoms show up before this point?

Avatar f tn The appearance was brown and white patches all over her body. From my half-informed Google education I would guess it was an aids related condition. I politely asked her that but she said no. So my questions are as follows... 1. I correctly used a condom so I'm not at risk right? 2. Does that skin condition sound aids related? 3.
Avatar f tn Anxiety related to HIV is a common occurence for a lot of reasons...people being uneducated about the REAL risks for HIV, poor education history of HIV/AIDS causing an gross lack of understanding about just how hard it is to transmit...and guilt over certain sexual encounters. Anxiety can easily spiral out of control.
572651 tn?1530999357 If you saw my email inbox you might be surprised at some of the mail I receive. I have signed up on distribution lists for many medical sites, including Nursing Times from the UK. I received an announcement today about an upcoming convention in LONDON, that may be of interest to some of you. This convention/conference is September 29-30 and the registration is FREE. I wish I could go, but its a bit far to commute. Some of you who live in the UK may be interested, though.
Avatar m tn Sadly, what you wrote above is typical of the knowledge of probably most health care professionals. Even my own nursing education didn't teach me the REAL risks. It wasn't until I worked specifically with AIDS/HIV patients, and got to know many respected ID docs, and worked in employee health, that I learned the REAL facts.
627816 tn?1349238116 If the information you have for Kansas City, USA is relevant throughout the USA, why not put the information on the Health Page under a title such as Educational Rights in the USA.
Avatar m tn Part of the problems we are having in this country, I believe, stems from the formal education we have, or don't have. Basically the public education system we have has not changed over the last century, so what changes would you make if you could and if added cost is involved how would you pay for it.
