Ex. 19. Put the questions on the following text and answer them:

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS or Aids) is acollection of symptoms and infections resulting from the specific damage to the immune system caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The late stage of the condition leaves individuals prone to opportunistic infectionsandtumors. Although treatments for AIDS and HIV exist to slow the virus's progression, there is no known cure. HIV is transmitted through direct contact of a mucous membrane or the bloodstream with a bodily fluid containing HIV, such as blood,semen,vaginal fluid, and breast milk. This transmission can come in the form of sex,blood transfusion, contaminated hypodermic needles, exchange between mother and baby during pregnancy,childbirth, or breastfeeding, or other exposure to one of the above bodily fluids.

Most researchers believe that HIV originated in Africa during the twentieth century; it is now a pandemic, with an estimated 38.6 million people now living with the disease worldwide. The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the World Health Organization (WHO) estimate that AIDS has killed more than 25 million people since it was first recognized on June 5,1981, making it one of the most destructive epidemicsinrecorded history. In 2005 alone, AIDS claimed an estimated 2.4–3.3 million lives, of which more than 570,000 were children. A third of these deaths are occurring in sub-Saharan Africa, retarding economic growth and destroying human capital.Antiretroviral treatment reduces both the mortality and the morbidity of HIV infection, but routine access to antiretroviral medication is not available in all countries. HIV/AIDS stigma is more severe than that associated with other life-threatening conditions and extends beyond the disease itself.


Ex. 20. Skim through the text and say what it deals with:

HIV is transmitted in several ways, including sexual transmission, transmission through infected blood; it easily transmitted trough needles contaminated with infected blood and from infected mother to child. Each year, nearly 600,000 infants are infected with HIV, either during pregnancy or delivery or through breast feeding. The rate of mother-to-child transmission in resource-poor countries is as much as 40 percent higher than it is in the developed world. But if women receive treatment for HIV infection during pregnancy, the risk to their babies is significantly reduced. Combinations of HIV drugs may reduce the risk of mother-to-child transmission even more.

WHO has been working with multiple partners to define and strengthen the normative guidance, policies and implementation of prevention, care and treatment of women and infants infected with HIV and AIDS.



AIDS is an immune deficient state caused by human immunodeficiency virus. HIV is transmitted by transfer of body fluids containing the virus. The major methods of transmission are sexual contact, the using of infected needles, and blood products. Once infected with HIV, most people have no symptoms and no indication that they are infected. However infected persons are able to transmit the virus to others. The signs and symptoms of AIDS are the following: fatigue, night sweats, chill or fever lasting for several weeks, weight loss, swelling of lymph nodes and others. AIDS can lead to pneumonia, skin cancer, meningitis, encephalitis, myelitis, progressive form of dementia and others. There are three main types of medications for HIV and AIDS. They are antiviral drugs, immune system boosters, and medications for prevention or treatment of opportunistic infections. But the effectiveness of standard treatments is limited by the state of immunodeficiency.
