The causes


Russians saw an increase in unemployment, alcoholism, crime and drugs at this time. Some of which are candidates as causes for the spreading of AIDS.


This is an example of how the spreading of AIDS is interconnected with society and our habits.

Aids can be spread through

sexual intercourse

The HIV virus present in sexual fluids can be spread this way.

shared needles

Since the HIV virus is present in blood, shared needles or injections (for drugs and such) can spread AIDS.

child transmission

The virus can be transmitted from mother to child in the womb or through breast-feeding.

blood transmission

Since HIV is present in blood, AIDS can spread when blood with HIV is enters another person’s circulatory system.

The solution


Through this presentation, it is evident that the spreading of AIDS has a social link. By targeting and fixing the root of the cause, we can prevent AIDS.

The Government’s Role the solutions is a safer method.

Vaccines the solutions is a safer method.

  • WHO: A vaccine is any preparation intended to produce immunity to a disease by stimulating the production of antibodies.

    • Vaccinations include suspensions of killed or attenuated microorganisms, or products or derivatives of microorganisms.

WHO the solutions is a safer method.

  • World Health Organization

    • Authority for health within United Nations

    • Leadership in global health concerns

    • Research

    • Establish global standards

    • Provide health support to nations

  • Though not a government itself, the WHO is comprised of the governments of 193 member states

Regulation and supply
Regulation and Supply region.

  • WHO is involved in the regulation and supply of vaccinations worldwide

  • Supplies especially to Third World Countries and nations in pandemic/epidemic crisis

    • “The right vaccine, in the right place, at the right time”

Red reaching every district
RED – Reaching Every District region.

  • 2002 – global immunization goal 80%

  • 2010 – goal 90% nationally

Routine immunization
Routine Immunization region.

  • As of January 2009, “Immunization is no longer limited to the classic six vaccines for children.”

    • Immunizations are moving beyond the traditional amount, and are being used “to prevent disease, disability and death.”

    • WHO strategy influences government policy worldwide, thus more vaccinations are becoming commonplace

School based immunization
School-based Immunization region.

  • Access to children through school

    • School enrollment increasing, therefore more children available to vaccinate

  • Aim: “protect more children in a changing world.”

  • Expansion of vaccination “beyond the traditional target group of infants.”

  • Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Tunisia – established school-based immunization programs

Benefits of who involvement
Benefits of WHO involvement region.

  • Establishes world vaccination standards

    • Ensures procedure/equipment safety, proper vaccines

  • Aids individual governments in creating vaccination/health policy

  • Centralized funding and research

  • World Organization = mutual aid

Disadvantages of who involvement
Disadvantages of WHO Involvement region.

  • Government is under external influence

  • Standards and Regulations leave little choice in determining policy

    • Government must conform to WHO international/regional policy

  • Signatory countries are legally bound by WHO constitution

Article 21 who constitution
Article 21, WHO constitution region.

  • The Health Assembly shall have authority to adopt regulations concerning:

  • (a) sanitary and quarantine requirements and other procedures designed to prevent the international spread of disease;

  • (b) nomenclatures with respect to diseases, causes of death and public health practices;

  • (c) standards with respect to diagnostic procedures for international use;

  • (d) standards with respect to the safety, purity and potency of biological,

  • pharmaceutical and similar products moving in international commerce;

  • (e) advertising and labelling of biological, pharmaceutical and similar products moving in international commerce.

Article 21 cont d
Article 21 cont’d region.

  • Essentially, the WHO has the authority to impose an international/regional health crisis, and order the course of action it deems appropriate

    • Vaccinations, quarantine, etc

Canadian government
Canadian Government region.

  • Offers free vaccinations through Canada Health Care Plan

  • Regulates production of vaccines in accordance with WHO, as do other individual government agencies

Media region.

  • Media and government combine to exaggerate situations of epidemic

    • Media pressure causes governments to declare epidemic/pandemic when unnecessary

  • Media influences people, false facts

    • Pressure on government for vaccines that are not always needed

    • Public sentiment out of hand

Government reaction
Government Reaction region.

  • Declaration of state of epidemic/pandemic frequently leads to vaccination shortages

    • Vaccinations for those who do not need them (Have no contact with infected, no risk situations)

Forced vaccinations
Forced Vaccinations region.

  • Government requires people in certain professions to have a minimum number of vaccinations

    • Military

    • Nursing/Doctoring

    • School

School vaccinations
School Vaccinations region.

  • Government requires certain vaccinations for school attendance

  • Ex: Peel District School Board

    • Mandatory Hepatitis B vaccinations

      • Students without these vaccinations have been notified that they will be expelled

    • Students are required to routinely ‘update their health records’ with the school board

Conclusion region.

  • Government role in vaccinations is beneficial in an international community

    • Allows for mutual aid and advanced research/production/funding

  • Government, combined with Media, exaggerates situation and can have a negative influence on the populous

    • Can lead to vaccine shortages, unnecessary vaccinations

  • Government puts pressure on people to get vaccinations that not necessarily needed

Bibliography region.








  • Don’t want to be pressurized by government region.

  • Nothing proven to be 100% absolute in any vaccination

  • Some parents prefer their child to get well on their own and build a stronger immune system rather than intervene with vaccines or antibiotics


  • Vaccines contain toxic additives and heavy metals. region.

  • Ingredients includes toxins such as formaldehyde (Queensland Poisons Control Centre has said was “unsafe at any level if injected into the human body”), carbolic acid, aluminium (possible development of Alzheimer’s disease and allergies), and Thiomersal (mercury - based preservative/ neurotoxin)

  • Contaminated with human and animal viruses and bacteria

  • Most childhood vaccines are cultured on sometimes animal tissue, animal broth or blood products of some kind.

  • Not able to guarantee an uncontaminated vaccine


  • Can cause serious immediate side effects region.

  • Some cases have shown convulsions and epilepsy, slight/ permanent brain damage, life threatening allergic reactions, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

  • Can cause serious long-term side effects

  • Conditions such as Asthma, Eczema, Food Allergies, Chronic Ear Infections, Diabetes, Arthritis, Autism, Attention Deficit Disorder, Hyperactivity, Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer and other conditions


  • Vaccines do not have guaranteed protection against infectious diseases

  • Parents are asked to give their children vaccines that at best, will provide a temporary sensitization to illnesses and at worst, can make their children more susceptible to both opportunistic and infectious illness.
