From the interaction with Doctor the team found out that HIV will not spread by:








  • FOOD


  • PETS and mosquito bites


  • Body fluids like

    • Saliva

    • Tears

    • Sweat

    • Feces

    • Urine

Inferences from the data collected
Inferences from the data collected will not spread by:

  • 89% of total infected people come under 15-49 age group.

  • This age group is the workforce of our country.

  • This category is surely responsible for contributing to GDP of our nation.

  • If the present trend of spread of AIDS continues the total workforce of our nation will be destroyed and nation may face shortage of healthy people to sustain the growth and development nurtured by our forefathers.

Inferences will not spread by:

  • Another shocking factor is, a good number of the infected people were not aware of AIDS and HIV prior to infection.

    • If they were to be exposed to Awareness education in the schools and communities the alarming rate of spread of AIDS could be arrested in the early stage itself.

Suggestions will not spread by:

  • In the absence of medicine and cure, the only way to protect people is to create awareness on HIV and AIDS.

  • Schools should introduce ‘Sex education’ in the curriculum.

  • Schools should adopt nearby slums/villages and take responsibility to create awareness in the local communities.

How do the choices we make now affect us later
How do the choices we make now affect us later? will not spread by:

  • The choice we make today impacts our tomorrow.

  • If sex education is introduced we can save the children- the face of tomorrow.

  • If our Adults practice safe sex we can save the workforce – the face of today.

From our part
From our part will not spread by:
