"AIDS AND ROLE OF YOUTHS TO CREATE AWARNESS ABOUT AIDS AMONG PEOPLE" most commonly AIDS is called as silent killer, The main reason for AIDS (Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome) is HIV (Human Immuno Defiency virus). when this virus enters our body, immediately changes into RNA, and then spreads quickly. After that it starts to destroy the white blood corpuscles. Because of this our resistance towards diseases gets decreased. actually thr is an difference between aids and hiv.. that is, the final stage of the hiv virus is called aids,at this stage the human body cannot withstand even an ordinary cold. In the year 1996 according to the survey, about 5000 persons per day were affected by AIDS in the whole world. In 1996, it was also discovered that the virus can be controlled to a certain extent. The survey in 2002, says that about 3. 97 millions of people are suffering from this disease in India. many thinks that the virus spreads when we shake hands or eat together or kiss the affected persons or even use their clothes or even through musquito bites.. but 100% it is not possible.. becoz it is not an communicable disease. it can be transmitted only by the following modes: 1. Unprotected hetero contact. 2. Injection which is used without sterlising after using for HIV/aIDS affected person. 3. when we use the Blood of HIV affected person. 4. From the pregnant lady who is affected of AIDS to the child or through milk feeding. and the Symptoms may be: 1. Loss of 10% or more body weight 2. Fever of unknown origin 3. Pneumonia, brain tumours, unremitting diarrhea, swelling of lymph glands. then i ll speak about the Role of youth in HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention: Today's youth is going to build tomorrow's future. we build the nation and we together build the world. Each one has their own responsibility in building a healthy world. Because of the scientific inventions many diseases are eradicated many can be cured but still there are certain exceptions like HIV virus which threatens the whole world. If every one follows a small concept A,B,C,D,E then we would easily eradicate the killer virus.. ie: A-Awareness among the family youth should create awareness about HIV in their family, because when the family realizes the importance of eradication of HIV, then the society will realize and then the nation will realize and finally all together the world will realize the importance of eradicating this virus. People of the whole world will be aware and take preventive measures. B-Being Self controled youth should understand their problems clearly. They should have self control and they should be motivated to concentrate on good aspects of life. They should have awareness about the preventive measures of HIV. C-Conducting competition and exhibition Youth should take the responsibility in conducting various types of competition and exhibitions in various schools, colleges regarding the awareness and prevention of HIV. D-DRAMA Students of the college must be encouraged by their teachers and they should e taken to the rural areas, schools other educational institutions, offices etc. to conduct street plays to bring about the awareness among the people and the people should be thought clearly the preventive methods, symptoms, methods of testing the HIV virus and also the facilities provided by the government to the HIV affected. People must be given awareness in their vernacular language. E-Extending their support to the HIV affected person Youth have to discharge their responsibility of meeting the HIV affected peoples and giving them self-confidence and also encourage them to engage in some activities in which they are interested. I finally conclude that : HIV affected peoples can live to the maximum of 10 to 15 years. This period can be extended if they live happily. Only way to make them happy is to treat them as normal persons. india is in 42nd place in developing country & 56th place in HDI but 2nd place in AIDS in the world. this situation can be changed only by the younths,becoz todays youths is tommrows future. finally i thank the management for giving me a youthful chance for creating an awarness among the students. Thanks a lot
