Why do we need to know about the AIDS? An estimated 800,000 to 1.2 million people in the United States are infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) (American Social Health Association). Unlike many diseases, HIV infection and AIDS are preventable and getting up-to-date information is the first step towards protecting yourself. Africa and Asia has the most Aids affected patients in comparison from the other continents. Countries with a high rate of infection are Uganda, Burundi, Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zambia. According to World Health Organization, Asia had 1 millian individuals mostly in India and Thailand whose blood had tested positive for the AIDS vius (steel 11). In order to increase awareness about AIDS, including how dangerous it is, we must make sure that every person knows what AIDS is, how it is spreading in Asian and AFrican countries and how it is transmit from one individual to other.DEFINING AIDSAIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and HIV means Human immunodeficiency virus. A general misconception is that a person who has an HIV positive test has AIDS. An HIV person can receive and AIDS diagnosis on the basis of certain blood tests and may not have experienced any serious illness. AIDS is the last stage of HIV infection. Typically, HIV lives in an infected person's body for months or years before any signs of illness appear (ASHA, 1).AIDS IN THE WORLDHIV patient's rates in most of the Asians countries have increased by over 100% since 1994 overall infection rates among the general population remain low in comparison with those in sub-saharan Africa.

With the number of new infections doubling every 14 months, India will soon overtake South AFrica as the nation with the most people living with HIV/AIDS (AMFAR 2).AIDS IN ASIAIn Bombay, a large city in India, it is estimated that 30,000 infected prostitutes serve 150,000 clients daily, exposing them to the risk of infection. In the words of one Indian scientist, " We are sitting on the top of a volcano" (Goldsmith 1048). Prostitution, homosexuality, and extensive drug use, which are usual ways in which AIDS is spread, are becoming a part of the Indian way of life (Steele 11). In China, home to one-fifth of teh world's poplulation, some epidemiologists report that AIDS cases are rising by nearly 30% each year, and there may be as many as 10 million Chinese living with HIV/ AIDS by 2010. The economic upheaval of the past two decades has fueled the spread of HIV/AIDS throughout Asia, causing both environmental filth and increased population mobility as people move to cities in search of better prospects.
