The definition for HIV is human immune deficiency virus and AIDS is acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The difference between the two is that HIV is a virus while AIDS is a condition. A person can be infected with HIV by having unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected person.

HIV/AIDS REDUCES ones energy and weakens the immune system of the body and hence the abili...

In my opinion people who behave like this should be taught the dangers of the HIV/AIDS factor and s...

HIV/AIDS is not a new song to youth, it has been sung for the past few years but it seems to be falling onto the ears of the deaf. The only problem is that youth are putting a blind eye to thi...

Korogocho is a sprawling slum in Nairobi; the fourth largest after Kibera, Mathare and Mukuru kwa Njenga, with over 2 million people living in an area of 2 square kilometres according to UN habitat. Like any other slum in urban cities, Korogocho has a myriad of problems: alcoholism, drug abuse, prostitution, crime and many diseases including waterborne diseases, malaria, HIV and Aids topping the list.
