Let’s Learn More About AIDS in Honor of AIDS Awareness Month

Let’s Learn More About AIDS in Honor of AIDS Awareness Month

Observe AIDS Awareness Month with us.

December is AIDS Awareness Month; we would like to invite you to observe this month with us as we dispel some of the most common myths about HIV and AIDS.

Myth #1: AIDS is a Death Sentence

While it’s true that HIV/AIDS is one of the deadliest pandemics in recent history, advances in medical treatment have radically transformed the lives of those living with HIV and AIDS.  For instance, new drugs have allowed people with HIV to live longer and healthier lives.  Additionally, the development of new treatments hasminimized the effects of AIDS and can help people manage their condition and lead fulfilling and generally normal lives.

Myth #2: Condoms are the Only Way to Prevent HIV/AIDS

While condoms are one of the most effective ways of preventing the spread of AIDS, there are other options available.  For instance, there are certain drugs that can reduce a person’s risk of developing HIV when taken daily.  Additionally, people who are infected with HIV can also undergo treatments that will make them less likely to pass on the virus.

Myth #3: A Mother with AIDS Cannot Have a Healthy Baby

When a mother’s HIV is untreated, she can pass the disease on to her child during pregnancy, labor, delivery, or breastfeeding.  However, with the proper treatments for both mother and child, the transmission of the disease can be virtually eliminated.  With the right treatments and medication, a mother with HIV can protect her baby from catching the virus from her.

This December, we at the at The Maria Sanchez Show invite you to join us as we celebrate AIDS Awareness Month.  Don’t forget to check out our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown. Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PST/7:00 p.m. EST.
