History of the day:

The day was first marked in 1988 and was also the first-ever international day for global health. Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a chronic disease that is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The immune system of the person who is suffering from the disease gets damaged and also reduces the disease-fighting ability of the body.

There are various reasons through which a person can be affected by AIDS.

  • It can be contracted through body fluids like blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, vaginal and rectal fluids, and breast milk of an infected woman.
  • Unprotected sex with a person who is infected can also pass on the deadly disease to another person.
  • Sharing injection needles, razor blades, knives among other things with an infected person can also be a reason for contraction of the disease.
