The elderly that is concentrating on the most affected people in HIV has declined in recent years. In the case of children between the ages of 25 and 30, they are the majority of those diagnosed among those over 35 years of age.
This is the owner's owner Anti-AIDS Program, Dr. Víctor Bittar He said that this is related to a certain degree of unrest in preventive measures. But he warned that the number of senior teachers diagnosed with HIV has increased significantly. This segment accounted for 34.8% in 2017 and 31.8% this year.
However, Most of the new diagnoses continue to be secondary education, which is 44.5% this year.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus is a pioneer of AIDS since the 80s, it has been implemented in societies and has identified the mechanisms for the prevention of scientific progress and the alleviation of the effect. There are also awareness-raising campaigns that work on prevention, as it happens every time December 1, International Day against AIDS. That's why transmissions continue.
This year, the number of cases diagnosed and recorded has fallen dramatically, however, according to the program, there are delays in the reporting of the phenomenon and the estimation It will close to mid 2019.
therefore, In 2018, 185 cases of HIV and 46 AIDS were reported, compared to 296 and 61, respectively. Bittar has warned that they are estimated to reach 300 years and that the province will present a diagnosis of HIV over 300 years ago.
On the other hand, this halt does not attract attention. Although there are information and access to preventative measures, the latest 8 years have been filed with cases of duplication in the previous decade.
Between 2000 and 2009, 1,432 new reports were diagnosed in Mendoza; In 2010, there were 2,573.
"We do not have absolute truth, we believe that care has been taken to ensure that men are considered as preventive measures, that young people are aware of what HIV is and how they should be taken care of, but that they do not recognize condoms," he said. However, the important source of transmission is oral sex, and most do not use protection, since there is no such transmission in this way.
"Sometimes you know things, but they are not considered in bed with the bathtub and there are many practices with the consumption of alcohol or other substances and they do not know who they had sex" The owner of the program has been added.
Men are the most affected and, finally, the male index increased.
This year, 75.68% of new diagnoses were cis-males (Those biological men who perceive themselves) 21.1% of Cis-women and 3.2% of trans-women.
The men's index, the difference between women and biological men, has increased HIV / AIDS. After several years 2.7 a even though the turns of small ridges, In 2018 he scored 3.7. That means that Each biological woman has 3.7 males with this infection.
