AIDS

Hi again,

we've got a long weekend ahead and I thouhgt that a good reading at this time would be any texts that give you information about AIDS. You may think that "it won't happen to you!", but many of the people infected by the HIV never thought of catching the virus. So be aware of the risks and protect yourself.

Read the following page titled "HIV and AIDS: Are You at Risk?" .
After reading it, go to this page and do some quizzes about AIDS.

You can also read, listen or watch a video if you visit some other links in this page.

Then post your comments. Tell me what you have read or done and if you have learnt something.
After reading the text try to complete this quiz correctly without looking at the text again.

Isabel

I’ve liked the text because it explains how we can contract the AIDS, the HIV and the STD. It took me 20 minutes reading. HIV means Human Immunodeficiency Virus and AIDS means Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. The text has been very interesting and I’ve solve my doubts about the sex illness.

I have read about VIH and Aids.
It took me fifteen minutes.
I have looked up nine words.
I like the text a lot of because I think that it has a lot of information.
I think that this is a big problem of the society and although there are very much information about this, people who live in rich countries and are infect because they are very irresponsible; but people die in the poor countries because they haven’t got medicines.
Also there is a repulse about the people infect. I don’t agree.
There are a lot of ways to be protected.
You can now if you have the virus with analysis.
If you have the virus you have to have a healthy life.
You’ll have to follow yours doctor’s instructions: get immunizations to prevent infections such as pneumonia and flu, and if you smoke or if you use drugs, quit, eat healthy foods, exercise regularly to stay strong and fit and get enough sleep and rest.
You can have a children but with the control of a doctor.
You cannot scorn to people that are infect but you have to take protection.
You can live very good with a people infect.
If you pair is infected you’ll have to have a lot of protection, but you can live with her or him very good.
