Rationale and Scope: HIV/AIDS is an epidemic, which is ignored by many, as the disease is assumed to be only obtained by unfaithful sexual activity and this is considered wrong by society. Many patients have HIV but are not able to help themselves with the treatment, as they do not have the money nor support. Most suffer in silence, as they are afraid to go get the test because if their reports are positive then society will decline them. Many neglect their health and take the risk to survive HIV without treatment, which then leads to AIDS and causes the patient to die. Through this essay, I would like to elaborate on how there is treatment for HIV/AIDS. I plan on investigating few countries on how aware they are about Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) and whether the treatment is available in their country. I aim to show how important awareness of HIV/AIDS is and how there is Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) that can help treat the disease. Global Perspectives: HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that attacks the CD4 cells/T Cells which fight against the infections in the body 's immune system. The virus of HIV spreads through direct contact of fluids present in the body like semen, blood, vaginal fluids etc. Casual contact such as a handshake with an HIV patient will not make you get HIV. The most common way people get HIV is through sexual activities and needle or syringe use. Through HIV tests, you can diagnose this virus which might help you to avoid AIDS
