It Pays to Know


"Bandila: Rising HIV cases hound PH"


It is very alarming that HIV/AIDS cases in our country still rise and that we are one of the top nine countries with the fastest growing percentage with the disease. It has been recorded that the Philippines alone records an alarming 29,000 cases of confirmed HIV victims. Lack of awareness and understanding of the disease still tops the reason why it is still prevalent and continuing despite efforts of authority. Research concludes that the most vulnerable age group are the adolescent because they lack exposure from the proper education and the word sex has been a taboo for us Filipinos. Until this day, there is still no found cure for HIV virus. What we can do is to be aware and to open our minds to solutions that can further advance our goal, which is eradicating HIV/AIDS.

High Time for a CHANGE in PH

"Awareness is a high key in preventing

 the prevalence of a disease."


Philippines is a humble country yet things invisible from the naked eye are screaming proudly putting people in a great risk. One of these things is the growing rate of Human Immunodeficiency Virus, better known as HIV. It has sparked many controversies, made famous in different banners and headlines, yet we fail to undermine its roots and contexts inhibiting us to prevent the spreading of the virus. That is why it is our goal to let you know what causes, and how to prevent HIV.

It has been reported that most HIV cases are contracted through sexual transmission. 79 % of the total cases accounts from intercourse, 5% from sharing needle while injecting drugs, 0.3 % through mother-to-child transmission, and the remaining via blood transfusion and needle prick. The rise in the number of cases is very alarming and most people at risk sadly aren’t knowledgeable that they are potential victims. These include men-to-men sexual intercourse, Injecting Drug Users, and the prevalence of HIV to sex workers.



It is saddening that our conservative values as Filipinos are know liberated. But we are given the talents and the capabilities to CHANGE our status and bring back the former glory of the Filipino People. We can start rebuilding our future as to stop, if not eradicate the disease from our system. We, however little our ways, can make an impact if we remember to be united and walk for one cause, and that is to instill in the minds of the people the harmful effects of the HIV virus, and what’s in it that eventually kill, if not paid attention to.


Let us be advocate of HIV awareness, help us educate the world, and together, enable our power to CHANGE.

HIV 101


In this article:


About HIV

What is HIV?
HIV is a virus that attacks the body's immune system-the body's defence against diseases.  The latest research suggests that between 70 and 90 per cent of people may experience symptoms of infection a few days after having been infected.  Three symptoms occuring together: fever, rash and a severe sore throat should always be considered a potential indicator of HIV infection.  These symptoms usually disappear within two or three weeks.  Some people may not experience these early symptoms.  In all cases, without effective treatment the immune system will become very weak and no longer be able to fight off illnesses.
Are HIV and AIDS the same?
No. When someone is described as living with HIV, they have the HIV virus in their body. A person is considered to have developed AIDS when the immune system is so weak it can no longer fight off a range of diseases with which it would normally cope.
Is there a cure for HIV?
No, but treatment can keep the virus under control and the immune system healthy.  People on HIV treatment can live a healthy, active life, although they may experience side effects from the treatment.  If HIV is diagnosed late, treatment may be less effective in preventing AIDS.

Living with HIV

What's it like living with HIV?
If people with HIV are diagnosed early and respond to treatment they can be healthy, work and have relationships like anyone else and have a long life expectancy.
Coming to terms with an HIV diagnosis and getting used to treatment can be very difficult however, and people living with HIV will often need support from healthcare providers, friends and family, employers and support organisations. Read real stories from people living with HIV talking about their experiences.
What treatment is available for people with HIV?HIV treatment was transformed with the introduction in 1996 of Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART) which now means that as long as someone is diagnosed in time and then adheres to their medication they can in the vast majority of cases manage their health condition and look forward to a near normal life expectancy. 
There are side-effects for some people who take ART, including fatigue, depression and diarrhoea, though these are increasingly well-managed. 
In the early days of treatment, people with HIV had to take a very large number of pills, often with complex timing and/or dietary requirements, but advances in treatment now mean someone commencing treatment will in all probability have to take only one pill a day.
Why do people find it hard to tell others they're HIV positive?
People living with HIV may find it hard to tell others about their condition as they worry that people will reject them, or they will experience prejudice from friends, family and colleagues. People living with HIV can also experience discrimination in their workplace, in healthcare settings (for example GPs and dentists), from members of their local community and through the media.
HIV prejudice is often the result of ignorance about how HIV is passed on and unfounded fear of becoming infected. Encouraging those around us to talk about HIV and find out the facts can help overcome this.

Transmission

How is HIV passed on?
HIV can be passed on through infected blood, semen, vaginal fluids or breast milk. The most common ways HIV is passed on are:
  • Sex without a condom with someone living with HIV
  • Sharing infected needles, syringes or other injecting drug equipment
  • From an HIV-positive mother (to her child) during pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding - if the right steps to prevent infection are not taken
Can you get HIV from oral sex?
Oral sex carries a much lower risk than vaginal or anal sex, but HIV can still be passed on through cuts or ulcers in the mouth if they come into contact with infected bodily fluids.
Can you get HIV from kissing?
No. HIV cannot be passed on through:
  • Kissing or touching
  • Spitting, coughing or sneezing
  • Toilet seats, swimming pools, or shared facilities or utensils
Can women living with HIV still have a baby?
Yes. HIV can be passed from mother to child, but there are steps that can be taken to reduce the possibility of the child contracting HIV to less than one per cent, including giving the mother and child antiretroviral HIV drugs, delivering the child by Caesarean and not breastfeeding the baby.

Prevention

Could I get HIV?
If you are sexually active or share needles you could be at risk from getting HIV. Although anyone can become infected, some communities in the UK have higher rates of infection, such as gay and bisexual men and Black African men and women.
How can I protect myself from HIV?
Always use a condom when having vaginal or anal sex. You also may want to use a condom or dental dam during oral sex although the risk of transmission of HIV is much lower. Always use a condom that carries the European CE safety mark. You can get free condoms from a family planning or sexual health clinic, which you can locate at www.fpa.org.uk/finder/. Never share needles, syringes or any other injecting equipment.

HIV tests

What do I do if I've put myself at risk?For information on the basics of HIV testing, see NAT's simple HIV test fact sheet.
NAT works in partnership with Freedom Health. Click here to ask a Doctor about HIV.

Disclaimer: NAT is not responsible for any of the views or advice provided on the Freedom Health website.
If you are within 72 hours of an incident of possible exposure to HIV, ask for PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis) treatment from a sexual health clinic or at your nearest hospital accident and emergency department.  PEP treatment can stop you becoming infected with the virus after you have been exposed to HIV.  The sooner treatment is begun the higher the probability the treatment will be effective. Find out more about PEP at www.tht.org.uk/pep.
For more detailed information on the different types of HIV test you can have, see NAT's downloadable fact sheet.

World AIDS Day

In 1988 a summit of health ministers agreed that a united global effort was required to halt the spread of HIV.  As a result, World AIDS Day emerged as the first ever international health day.  It is now marked on 1 December in countries all around the world.
The aim of World AIDS Day is to bring to people's attention the worldwide challenges and consequences of the epidemic and ultimately, help prevent the spread of HIV and improve the lives of people living with the virus.
Why do we wear red ribbons to mark World AIDS Day?
The red ribbon is worn as a sign of support for people living with HIV. Wearing a red ribbon for World AIDS Day is a simple and powerful way to challenge the stigma and prejudice surrounding HIV and AIDS that prevents us from tackling HIV in the UK and internationally.

THE HIV STORY OF MARITES


It pays to be aware.

This girl, Marites, died, not beacause of HIV or AIDS, but because of the opportunistic infection and complications AIDS and HIV did to her.


Overview of HIV/AIDS in the Philippines


The Philippines

An estimated 8,700 people were living with HIV in The Philippines in 2009. The country has traditionally had a very low HIV prevalence, with under 0.1% of the population infected. Even in groups such as sex workers and MSM that are typically associated with higher levels of HIV, prevalence rates above 1% have not yet been detected. In the case of sex workers, this is possibly due to efforts to screen and treat those selling sex since the early 1990s. However, there are reasons to believe that this situation may not last. In early 2010 the Department of Health in the Philippines stated the country was now on the brink of a "concentrated epidemic", due to a rise in prevalence. Condom use is not the norm in paid sex, drug users commonly share injecting equipment in some areas, and among Filipino youth, there is evidence of complacency about AIDS. National HIV prevalence among the most at risk populations which includes sex workers, men who have sex with men and injecting drug users, has increased more than five fold from 0.08 % in 2007 to 0.47 % in 2009.

Men-to-men sex fuels HIV rise in the Philippines


Unprotected sex between men is fuelling an alarming rise of HIV infections in the Philippines, experts warn.
The Southeast Asian country is facing an HIV epidemic, with sex between men making up nearly 90 percent of all new cases, according to the health department and the United Nations’ Development Programme (UNDP).
Ten new infections are being detected every day, three times the rate of just a few years ago, the UNDP said.
Although the total of 9,669 confirmed cases is relatively small in a population of nearly 100 million people, authorities acknowledge many more cases likely remain undetected and point to the concerning upward trend.
The Philippines is one of only seven countries globally where HIV cases have risen by 25 percent or more since 2001, according to the UNDP.
“This is a worrying explosion of HIV cases marked by a shift in the way the virus is transmitted,” Philip Castro, the UNDP’s HIV/AIDS programme officer in the Philippines, told AFP.
He said 87 percent of new infections were attributed to unprotected men-to-men sex (MSM), in a country where condom use overall is one of the lowest in Asia.
“What’s more alarming is that more than 60 percent of (those engaging in) MSM had reported having unsafe sex in their last contact,” Castro said.
Lack of public education about HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, as well as the shame of living with the disease, also prevent many from acknowledging infections and seeking help, health experts said.
They lay a lot of the blame on the powerful Catholic Church, of which 80 percent of the population are followers, for spreading a conservative message they say has led to a lack of understanding and tolerance about condoms.
“Like modern leprosy”
Unprotected sex remains extremely common in the gay community, according to Humphrey Gorriceta, who contracted HIV after having unprotected sex with multiple male partners.
The 37-year-old former art gallery manager is now campaigning to raise public awareness about the dangers of unsafe sex and help other people infected with HIV.
“I know a lot of people living with HIV that are not allowed to go to school, to attend church services and gain access to certain health services,” he told AFP.
“HIV is like the modern leprosy, except it is hidden.”
Gorriceta said two friends who were diagnosed with HIV committed suicide recently due to depression.
“I helped the police take down one of them from hanging on the ceiling,” he said.
Gorriceta, one of only three men who have publicly come out in public about their disease, said he believed the number of people with HIV was higher than the official tally.
“Not all the people who are supposed to be tested get tested, and many of them are not properly aware of condom use,” said Gorriceta, who is a candidate for a masters degree in public health.
And while nearly all the new HIV cases in the Philippines are being detected among the gay community, prominent safe sex campaigner and columnist Ana Santos warned other sectors of the community were also in danger.
She said there were cases of bisexual men who contracted HIV after having gay sex, then unknowingly transmitted the disease to their girlfriends or wives.
“They were having sex with other men or transgenders and were also having sex with their partners,” she said. “These are things that are not openly talked about so we do not have a complete understanding of this phenomenon.”
“Our society is very conservative, people are not open to talking about sex much less about men having sex with men.”
Santos also said religious edicts had influenced society so that sexually active people often did not buy condoms or contraceptives because of shame.
Condoms ‘beyond reach’ of masses
Condoms are sold in drug stores at about a dollar a piece, but this is beyond the reach of the masses in a country where a third of the population live on less than that amount each day.
And with the church pressuring politicians, a 15-year campaign for parliament to pass a reproductive health bill that would require government to give free condoms to the poor has failed.
The bill would also require that sex education be taught in schools.
Experts point to a long-running education, medical check-up and condom give-away program that has curbed the spread of HIV among the sex worker community as proof that such methods work.
“Based on our assessment, limiting HIV/AIDS among female sex workers has been a relative success,” UNDP’s Castro said.
The church insists, though, that monogamous partners in responsible relationships is the key to stopping the spread of HIV.
“The reproductive health bill or any law for that matter, would not address rising HIV prevalence,” said Melvin Castro, head of the church’s episcopal commission on family and life.
“Change of attitude and lifestyle will.”

New once-a-day pill to treat HIV OKd




WASHINGTON, United States of America - A new pill to treat HIV infection -- combining two previously approved drugs plus two new ones -- has been approved for adults living with the virus that causes AIDS, US regulators said Monday, August 27.
The single daily dose of Stribild provides a complete treatment regimen for HIV infection, the US Food and Drug Administration said in a statement, and is meant for people who have not already received treatment with other HIV drugs.
"Through continued research and drug development, treatment for those infected with HIV has evolved from multi-pill regimens to single-pill regimens," said Edward Cox, director of the Office of Antimicrobial Products in the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
"New combination HIV drugs like Stribild help simplify treatment regimens."
The new pill, previously called Quad, is made by Gilead Sciences in California and "should be available to patients by the end of the week," company spokeswoman Erin Rau told AFP.
The company said it tested the pill in two double-blind clinical trials of more than 1,400 patients.
Results showed that Stribild performed as well or better than two other treatment combinations, and brought virus readings down to undetectable levels in around nine of 10 patients after 48 weeks.
"Therapies that address the individual needs of patients are critical to enhancing adherence and increasing the potential for treatment success," Gilead chief John Martin said in a company statement.
But some advocates say the new pill is priced far too high.
"We wanted to see (a price of) no more than the current drug," said Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, referring to Gilead's previously approved three-in-one pill, Atripla. But he said the price will be about a third higher than the three-pill combo.
The new drug "is not a significant improvement over existing therapies," Weinstein told AFP, adding the cost will "severely limit access" to the new medication.
Gilead is charging wholesalers $28,500 a year for the drug, but said it will provide discounts to state assistance programs and has created a patient financial-assistance program, Rau said.
This is Gilead's third single-tablet anti-HIV combination therapy, the company noted, adding it is still seeking approval for the newest offering in Australia, Canada and the European Union.
To get the drug to HIV patients in the developing world, where millions lack access to effective treatment options, generic versions are being developed -- with permission and help from Gilead -- by a number of Indian manufacturers and the Medicines Patent Pool, a non-profit that helps facilitate generic drug-making.
The drug combines Truvada -- another Gilead offering approved in 2004, that combines emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate to fight an enzyme that HIV needs to replicate -- with elvitegravir, another enzyme-fighting drug, and cobicistat, which enhances the effects of elvitegravir.
The FDA said further study is required to determine the quad-drug's safety for women and children, how resistance may develop, and whether the drug interacts with other drugs.
Stribild will also be required to carry a label warning patients and health care providers the drug can cause fatal side effects, including severe liver problems, and a build-up of lactic acid in the blood. The FDA said the label is also required for many other HIV-fighting drugs.
But Gilead said that during the studies, "most adverse effects were mild to moderate." The FDA said patients commonly experienced nausea and diarrhea.
The drug also weakened bones and caused or worsened kidney problems -- both of which will be mentioned in a warning on the drug's label.
Truvada was previously approved as a treatment for people infected with HIV to be used in combination with other antiretroviral drugs.
In July, it was also approved for use by healthy at-risk adults to prevent HIV, the first-ever daily pill approved for that purpose.
This year, the FDA also approved the first rapid HIV test that can be bought without a prescription and taken at home. - Agence France-Presse

FACE YOUR FEARS!

If you have been engaged or you are currently engaged in High risk sexual behavior, you might as well prepare yourself for whatever the outcome will be.


AIDS and HIV are sisters/brothers where in they cannot be traced for the first 3-5 months upon acquiring it. It usually takes 6 months before being detected in the blood examination thru HIV screening.


And take note, they won't be detected unless you take the test. There are no symptoms and NO CURE up to now. You'll just find yourself lying in the bed one day with all the complications that it invites once you get infected.

You won't die because of AIDS and HIV, you'll die due to the complications it gives. Common complications are opportunistic virus like Pneumonia, meningitis (Lagnat sa Utak) where in it could lead you to comatose and more!

UP TO NOW, there are still no cure created for HIV and AIDS. oh, btw, AIDS is the Stage 4 of HIV. both of them have no cures up to now.

So you better be aware and share your knowledge about this to your friends! It pays to be aware!

>> if you have been engaged in high risk behavior in sex, Drugs using syringes and injections, Group sex, you are tattoo-ed by a needle, or you have been promiscuously having sex to different persons, you better beware!


NOTE THAT, what I am going to give you is the information of the Manila Social Hygiene Clinic.


They conduct FREE exams and screenings for HIV and AIDS. By free, I mean really free( NO PAYMENT AT ALL) and you can get your result after 20 minutes. Or if you also know someone who have been engaged in high risk behavior in sex, you could also suggest him/ her to go along with you and also have the exam. FACE your fears! do it not for your mother, not for your lover, but for yourself, running away from your fears won't make your fears stop chasing you. Sooner or later you'll tire your self from running and they'll be able to find you.


This is a special project of the Department of Health (DOH), World Health Organization (WHO) and Youth Alliance to fight AIDS and HIV! They fund this project so don't doubt the credibility of this one.

A lot have gone to this clinic and had themselves tested, some got positive, some are negative.They all faced their fears.

How about you? when are you going to face yours? Share this article, blog and information to a friend. You could also save and change lives!
