ASTANA. KAZINFORM – In Astana in the first nine months of this year, 150 cases of HIV have been registered, and since 1997, 1,443 cases of HIV infection have been reported, according to the Public Health Administration in connection with the AIDS City Center.
From November 15 to December 15, 2018, the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan has declared the World AIDS Campaign under the motto "Know Your Status". The Public Health Office and the AIDS Center in Astana join this campaign and announce the month of fighting AIDS.
This campaign is dedicated to the campaign of World AIDS Day, which will focus on attracting public attention to the importance and importance of HIV testing, the need for timely treatment in case of a positive test result.
Center specialists say an increasing number of HIV infections have been reported by sexual contact. Deciding to carry out the HIV test is a reasonable step towards changes in risk behavior.
Knowing your positive status will allow you to treat in time. Modern antiretroviral drugs can prolong and improve the quality of life. Also, knowledge of HIV status can prevent the transmission of HIV from an HIV-infected mother to a child during pregnancy, childbirth, and breast-feeding. Therefore, it is very important that pregnant women undergo a double HIV test.
Here is one of the patients of the Center: "I live with HIV for 16 years. Today I am happy, I live a lot of lives because I learned my HIV status in a timely manner." I am a mother of two healthy children, and the treatment helped me not pass the virus to my children. "
According to experts, knowledge of HIV status is just as important as knowledge of ways and measures of HIV prevention, as treatment, as a refusal of drugs. Knowing your HIV status is a civilized way of preserving health.
