Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks the body's immune system, specifically targeting CD4 cells (also known as T cells), which are crucial for fighting off infections and diseases. HIV can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), the most advanced stage of HIV infection.

Common concerns surrounding HIV include its transmission through unprotected sexual intercourse, sharing needles, and from mother to child during childbirth or breastfeeding. Despite advancements in treatment, HIV remains a significant global health concern due to its potential to progress to AIDS if left untreated. AIDS weakens the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to opportunistic infections and certain cancers.

Stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV persist as major challenges, hindering prevention efforts and access to testing and treatment. Access to affordable antiretroviral therapy (ART) is crucial for managing HIV and preventing its transmission. However, concerns about drug resistance, treatment adherence, and the financial burden of lifelong therapy remain significant.

Preventive measures such as condom use, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and needle exchange programs, along with education and destigmatization efforts, are essential components of comprehensive HIV prevention strategies.

Hepatitis B and C

Hepatitis C is a viral infection primarily affecting the liver, caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV). It is commonly transmitted through contact with infected blood, such as sharing needles or receiving contaminated blood transfusions. Hepatitis C can also spread through sexual contact, though less commonly.

Many individuals with hepatitis C may not experience symptoms for years or even decades, leading to chronic infection. When symptoms do occur, they can include fatigue, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), abdominal pain, and nausea. Left untreated, chronic hepatitis C can lead to severe liver damage, cirrhosis, and an increased risk of liver cancer.

Hepatitis B is a viral infection that primarily affects the liver, caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). It can be transmitted through contact with infected blood or bodily fluids, such as during childbirth, sexual activity, or sharing needles. Hepatitis B can lead to both acute and chronic liver disease.

Acute hepatitis B often presents with symptoms such as fatigue, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), abdominal pain, and nausea. However, many people with acute infection may not experience symptoms at all. Chronic hepatitis B develops in individuals who fail to clear the virus after initial infection, increasing the risk of serious complications such as liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.

Common concerns regarding hepatitis B include its potential for chronic infection, which can lead to long-term liver damage and health complications. While there is no cure for chronic hepatitis B,

antiviral medications can help manage the infection and reduce the risk of progression to liver disease.
