Close to 1 million people are living with AIDS presently in the U.S. The disease that came up in 1984 has claimed millions of lives until now which makes it one of the deadliest diseases in history. The National AIDS Trust is asking people to think again about the negative labels and eliminate all the conventional beliefs about HIV. It is asking people to keep an open mind about AIDS or HIV. Even though the drugs such as antiretroviral therapy has brought down the casualty rate of people dying from AIDS substantially, the reports still reveal that 1 in 6 people infected from the virus are not aware about their disease, as reported by PerfSceince. As per the recent survey, about 6 new cases of AIDS are surfacing in the Andean country after every 24 hours. The findings of the survey revealed that even though there have been scientific advances being made in the HIV Treatment for individuals, and other prevention options, most people are still lacking the access to life saving services.

According to PerfScience, there is a greater need to provide adequate education to the young girls and the young women so that they have the option to protect themselves from HIV. President Barack Obama said that till date HIV has affected population disproportionately across the US. These populations also include bisexual and gay men, Black men and women, Latinos, the ones who inject drugs into their blood stream, young men and women, transgender women and people located in southern US, as reported by PerfScience.
