Different Perceptive about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome: A Survey Report
This particular research involves findings of the awareness for most life threatening disastrous disease AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) caused by HIV (Human Immune Virus) among pharmacy and non-pharmacy students. HIV AIDS is currently one of the major problems with cases increasing yearly, but with the death rate remaining relatively constant. The etiology of HIV AIDS is a complex of symptoms and infections caused by the HIV virus as it impacts the immune system. A person must come in contact with the virus; it enters the body through blood and body fluids. Some evidence shows that early diagnosis of HIV-AIDS can make the possibility to cure it and reduce the related morbidity rate. The awareness programs, campaigns, public adds, and seminars can reduce its prevalence and might be helpful in its prevention. The misuse of needles blades, blood products and selling without prescriptions must be prohibited for precautions. We have asked different questions to the pharmacy and non-pharmacy students and concluded that pharmacy students have a good know how of the particular disease comparatively to non-pharmacy students but the statistical evaluation shows that both type of students has fair good knowledge about HIV-AIDS manifestations, route of transmissions and somehow its protective measures. When asked about the curability of this disease pharmacy students shows good enough knowledge comparison to non-pharmacy students which concludes its treatment protocols and eradication is not common to them so they believe it is life stealing disease but that’s not true nowadays such treatment programs are available to cure the disease. As we know that HIV-AIDS is a sexually transmitted disease so infected people can be understood mistakenly we have to avoid the wrong thinking of people we must not be judgmental about them and must not blame infected person respectively but should provide a psychotherapy about it, society can play major role in this therapy.
