Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids world statistics


557003 tn?1222577226 And these 2 questions are not really important but just out of curiosity, what are those odds for heterosexual women and homosexual male and female? What is the current population of HIV and AIDS infected people in the US and Asia and different countries around the world? There must be a site somewhere that can give you these figures...
Avatar m tn Health authorities everywhere classify oral sex as a "low risk" activity. It is in actuality an academic approach. Purely theoritical. In the history of HIV/AIDS, spread over three decades, there is no proven evidence that someone acquired the infection through oral sex alone. What has been gathered through experience, statistics and records, HIV is tranmitted though 1. Unprotected anal and vaginal sex 2.
Avatar m tn Use a condom consistently and correctly and you won't have to worry about contracting HIV. Won't matter if the person you had sex with has HIV/AIDS or not.
Avatar m tn Oral sex is "theoretically" a sincerely low risk; however, the risk is so close to zero that it cannot be calculated. This doesn't mean to go enjoy oral sex with someone bleeding from the gums while massaging your genitals with a cheese grater, but you shouldn't be too concerned. If you would like to know the statistics of HIV/AIDS based on gender, you can easily go Google "HIV Statistics.
Avatar m tn //, but also in other places on the internet such as free online med journals. The other worrisome statistic is to do with CSW's. Even though Dr. HHH, who is usually a fountain of knowledge says that CSW's have a lower chance of HIV, this is not the case. Whilst it may be true in Western countries, where Subtype-B is prevalent, this is not true in South East Asia.
Avatar m tn Does anyone know if the info is out there anywhere and if so where to find it? I want to find out what percentage of all hiv/aids cases are from males who have sex with women.
Avatar f tn Statistics from HIV Aids council Australia,''of the 25,000+ people living in Australia with HIV 82% are men who have sex with men,10% hetro sexual community,8% iv drug users''.How is my statement incorrect??
Avatar m tn I also have read the doctors statistics in the expert forum about catching Hiv also the statistics for csw having Hiv and am wondering if this also applies to Australia (Queensland). I may be just being paronoid but if someone can answer the above that would be great. Suffering the same as most people I suspect I have managed to convince myself I have most of the symptoms.
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!
Avatar f tn Even more so when I found statistics for Washington ST, stating that there have been more than 15,000 HIV/AIDS cases recorded in Washington and about 3,000 people on average that have HIV and don’t know it. Some other symptoms like diarrhea have been present but no fever. I do not have a history of rashes and to my knowledge I am not allergic to anything. I'm nervous about getting tested, should this be a cause for concern?
Avatar m tn ) 2) Statistically speaking, does anyone know how many caucasion women are currently infected with HIV/AIDS in the US? I have searched, but cannot find any statistics. Thank you for your feedback / insight!
Avatar m tn I'm not an idiot. I know all the statistics and I'm not scared of people with HIV or AIDS. I actually work in a population where it's very possible for anyone of my clients to be diagnosed with it. Maybe you and nvmybeauty should think before you jump to conclusions like you did. Because I didn't know what peripheral neuropathy was I thought maybe it was caused by the AIDS. I apologize for "assuming" so.
Avatar n tn " My concern is that some 3rd world hospitals may only check for AIDS rather than HIV." huh?
Avatar n tn Be very worried of HIV, HIV is very real and anyone can contracted it. HIV is not a guessing game, for you to get a conclusive test result you will need to test 3 months post exposure from your last unprotected anal or vaginal sex.
Avatar m tn Can you advise if someone had unprottected vaginal sex with a lady who was confirmed HIV+ status, what are the odds the the man will aquire HIV?
Avatar m tn oh i've got a FIGURE for son contracted hiv from a single, one time exposure from an infected female!!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn This is a community for those who have HIV/AIDS, and for family and friends impacted by it.
Avatar m tn >HIV-infected people are living lots longer and not dying from AIDS in a relatively short time. Yes, if they have access to modern treatment. Without treatment (for example in previous years, before invention of anti-retroviral therapy) their prognosis was poor for almost all patients.
Avatar n tn i keep looking on the internet for the statistics in hiv like is it 1/1000 ppl have hiv or something.
Avatar m tn No statistics are not possible to record if there are not statistics to observe. its estimated that its one in 50,000,000 (fifty million) and only an estimation. Only if using latex and polyurthane condoms lambskin and other varieties are not included in this estimation as they do not provide adequate protection approved by guidelines No case has ever been recorded of protected sex transmission EVER!

Avatar n tn Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective inpreventing transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, correct and consistent use of latex condoms can reduce the risk of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including discharge and genital ulcer diseases. While the effect of condoms in preventing human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is unknown, condom use has been associated with a lower rate of cervical cancer, an HPV-associated disease.
