Answer Text:
Human Immuno-deficiency Virus/ Acquired Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome (HIV and AIDS):
It is a condition whereby the body is rendered defenseless to common diseases such as colds, coughs, and any other. It is caused by the Human Immuno-Deficiency
Virus (HIV). Recent statistics reveal that the rate of AIDS infection has gone down. This should encourage all Kenyans to step up the fight against HIV and AIDS.
How HIV and AIDS is spread
-Sexual contact with a person infected with HIV.
-From an infected mother to her child while in the womb, during birth or while breast feeding.
-Blood transfusion from an infected person.
-HIV contaminated instruments used for
cutting and piercing, for example, needles, razor blades and knives during circumcision.
