There is global a problem creeping at the feet of every single one of us AIDS AIDS has been a global epidemic for the past few decades now an epidemic that just cant seem to be stopped With all of the current knowledge we have about the disease and the ever-increasing technology we have to help combat the epidemic ignorance still seem to block many people from taking AIDS seriously We know enough about how the infection is transmitted to protect ourselves from it without resorting to such extremes as mandatory testing enforced quarantine or total celibacy However too few people are ignoring the AIDS message Perhaps many simply dont like or want to believe what they hear preferring to think that AIDS cant happen to them Experts repeatedly remind us that infective agents do not discriminate but can infect any and everyone Like other communicable diseases AIDS can strike anyone It is not necessarily confined to a few high-risk groups We must all protect ourselves from this infection and teach our children about it in time to take effective precautions Many of us have forgotten about the widespread epidemics such as the 1917 -1918-influenza pandemic which killed over 21 million people Having been lulled into false security by modern antibiotics and vaccines about our ability to conquer infections many were not prepared to cope with the advent of AIDS in 1981 The arrival of a new and lethal virus caught us off guard Research suggests that the agent responsible for AIDS probably dates from the 1950s with a chance infection of humans by a modified Simian virus found in African green monkeys Whatever its origins scientists conclude that the disease spread from Africa to the Caribbean and Europe then to the United States Current estimates are that 15 to 2 million Americans are now probably HIV carriers with higher numbers in Central Africa and parts of the Caribbean UNAIDS The AIDS virus is present
