HIV, an epidemic with no rest Cuyo newspaper


Certainly, times have changed and they have not been talking about HIV a decade ago. It is also true that if the virus is detected, a viral circle is obtained, which is why it is not transmissible according to the World Health Organization. On the news, there were some "relaxation" like that, when it is expected that the number of cases detected per year is expected. For this, we have added additions between the ages of 18 and 19 and over 50 years. Conclusion: We do not want to do enough to put an end to this epidemic and demand a family and institutional commitment to educate the sex of the responsible Public Health Ministry.

Without going any further, the province has been composed of 95 cases that have been diagnosed for some years, although this year could be overcome, it was closed in October and it had to be for two months.

Fortunately, and at the same time, there are other positive signals, for example, for four years, there is no case of diagnostic transmission. This means that even if they are infected with HIV, children are healthy thanks to treatments. To this end, there are three healthcare centers that care for positive HIV, currently there are eight total (see box separately). This continues to be the integrated treatment and monitoring of patients to achieve a viral load.

Victoria Sain, Head of the Provincial Program of AIDS, Sifilia and Viral Hepatitis, announced the current status of San Juan.

-What is the current landscape of HIV in San Juan?

The stabilized epidemic is treated as equal or less, last year, 95 new cases have been detected in the previous 97, etc. This year, we closed the month of October with 95 new HIV cases, and two months are missing to complete the year to add other diagnoses. That is, we continue to detect more cases if we continue or the transmission continues to be lacking attention.

– What are the diagnoses of the sexes and sexes?

The data process has not yet been closed in December, but in reality, the epidemic of these years determines that it is a woman among two women, and there are almost three men in San Juan for a woman. Adults have 32 men and 33 females, however, in new diagnoses the peak is noticeable between the ages of 18 to 19 and over 50.

– This means that perhaps we might not have the need to use condoms?

Actually, only campaigns are not enough. We must work throughout the territory, from each family and school, the Comprehensive Sexual Education Act, to be able to change the concept of their care.

It is a basic work from the beginning of the child's beginning. Starting one's own concept, not to say, to respect, to talk about sexuality. It is the responsibility of building principles to make decisions.

– Where are the new diagnostics detected? Are you linked to the tests you have done?

There are minimal cases that have been detected by these campaigns, as well as diagnoses, the community tends to approach, seeks information and advice. This year we have worked hard on decentralization and treatment in a project, so now San Juan has 8 interdisciplinary diseases that focus on the HIV, the classical hospitals of Rawson and Marcial Quiroga and René Favaloro Training Center. Known as Rotunda, was added to Pocito, Sarmiento, Albardón, Angaco and Caucete Hospitals.

– What should these centers do?

First of all, a preventive task is carried out, which is the basic line for stopping the epidemic. It is important to know that using condoms is essential, that the virus does not fit into our body. The second line is a diagnosis and the third is access to treatment and adherence because it is a chronic infection. If we adhere to this person, it has the team to go to the hospital that is looking for a doctor, a virus-free load can not be obtained, which means that the transmission of the virus by the World Health Organization is zero. Pharmacists, biochemists, psychologists, social workers, and the team of specialists in infectious diseases are responsible and nowadays they have joined the diet, responsible for these people and to achieve this goal.

– In view of the work carried out, there are fewer and fewer people living with HIV with AIDS?

Yes, it becomes chronic, it is now a chronic illness. Earlier detection, better chance of better quality of life and a diagnosis of non-symptomatic illness or marker disease. If you come up with high defenses, life quality will be significantly better. This year, the "Discover your state" competition in the world is for people to know how to test and get to know their situation. If it's negative, I'm taking care of myself or I'm not self-confident and I think again about how I'm moving about the sexuality. If you try positive, continue with the treatment.

– Do these intelligence help people still have prejudices with HIV carriers?

Yes, they are still prejudiced, maybe not stigmatized before, but they continue. Many children tell us that after having done a prenatal study, they do not call and still ask questions because they do not meet the profile they are looking for or because they take the liver tests they do, without permission. We know that we have to take part in such cases. There are still many still, and the media is crucial for correcting information.

– Sometimes it seems that it will come from AIDS World Day.

This year, we said that it was not shocked on December 1, so we had a lot of meetings with civil organizations and an expansion campaign, which was a bit slow, and at the same time, the creation of hepatitis.

– Do you have to deliver, cut or deliver medicines for people with HIV in the right way?

Yes they are usually delivered. There was a delay in reactions with the dollar growth, but it has been overtaken. The province has also made an important purchase purchased.

– In the case of pregnant women with HIV, what is the probability of a baby virus?

If there is no treatment and there is no treatment, the baby's probability is 30 percent, but there is a 95% chance of getting pregnant with 95% of pregnant women.


Based on the AIDS Provincial Program, the schedule for the next activities is planned

* December 1: Awareness raising will be carried out in each of the main sections of the department to deliver ribbons, classes, workshops and video projection. The idea is that Saint John goes to all the people and there are more voices in the departments.

* On the same day, the ribbons and red information on the same day will be performed at the Bicentennial Theater for the benefit of Unicef.

* November 29th and 30th: The Tests will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 13:00 p.m.

* December 3, Tuesday and December 4: The laboratory will be tested in all the provincial health centers. In all cases it is free and confidential. In this case, the result is not immediate, it will be given on the indicated date.

Main centers

All those who wish to consult HIV and AIDS approach any of the healthcare centers that have interdisciplinary care teams. These centers are detected, treated and controlled by affected people:
Rawson Hospital; Quiroga Marcial Hospital, René Favaloro Training Center, Albardón, Caucete, Pocito, Angaco and Sarmiento Hospitals.

Healthy babies

In the end, the baby in the liver was born through vertical infection in 2014, the year of the 15th of the mother who carried the virus. In 2013, two HIV born babies were born at the same risk in 13 consignments that were pregnant, but in 2015, no case of infected children was registered, even though it was 18 years old at the age of 18 with HIV.

In 2016 there were 11 shipments; 12 in 2017 and 16 up until 2018, and remain a four-year-old woman at the end of the year, but no contact has been registered.

All of them carry out controls and treatments when children are born without a virus.
