Hiv / Aids In India A Review :: Voters Unite
Shared by Asim
I'm learning more about HIV/AIDS right now, and particular what I'm wondering is Will there be a cure for HIV/AIDS. As I was reading in my Google reader this blog post caught my attention because it is informing more about HIV/AIDS.
The quote I chose here is basically saying that the people in INDIA are dying from this disease. it says in 2006 2.45 million Indians were living with this disease. It was in 2006, now is 2009 can you imagine the rate of HIV/AIDS today in INDIA?
I think this is persuasive because it is giving specific information about HIV/AIDS. It is giving us the date, country, and numbers of people.
The Government of India estimates that in 2006, about 2.45 million Indians were living with HIV (1.75 - 3.15 million) with an adult prevalence rate of 0.41%. India’s highly heterogeneous epidemic is largely concentrated in six states - in the industrialized south and west, and in the north-eastern tip. On average, HIV prevalence in those states is 4-5 times higher than in the other Indian states. HIV prevalence is highest in the Mumbai-Karnataka corridor, the Nagpur area of Maharashtra, the Nammakkal district of Tamil Nadu, coastal Andhra Pradesh, and parts of Manipur and Nagaland. ” We must remember that India has nearly 3 million people living with HIV. These are people facing stigma, discrimination and irrational prejudice everyday of their lives and need all our support and understanding.” Hon Min.of Health Shree A.Ramodass
