HIV/AIDS is no longer a new thing to the ears of anyone as its one of the world current killer disease which has been on discovery for years now. At the moment no cure drug has been announced by the world health but there are some anti retro viral drugs given to the victims in order to allow them live longer which if managed well the person can live his or her normal life which is why everyone should always know his/her status. One can manage HIV but once it turns to AIDS its “awaiting death state”. Too bad people from all walks of life do not run tests to know their status as required maybe due to fear of been diagnosed etc but whatever is your reason,its more dangerous to be ignorant of your status because thats why you don’t know if you are to start taking ARV drugs or not.
