There are so many myths about aids and some of these are,

HIV infected people look sick

On average it takes about 10-12 for someone who has HIV to develop into aids.During this time,the HIV infected will show few if any recognizable symptoms,but they are able to infect other people.

Aids is homosexual disease

In the early 1980s Aids was identified as a homosexual disease.Today,however,herosexual intercourse is the primary mode of aids transmission in much of the world.

Oral sex is "safe sex"

According to the centres for disease control and prevention,"numerous studies have identified that oral sex can result in the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.'The rate of HIV transmission through oral sex is not as severe as through other sex.Nevertheless the practice has become so prevalent that some doctors expect it to become a significant route for transmitting HIV.

There is a cure for aids

Although antiretroviral therapy can,in some patients,slow the progression from HIV to AIDS,there is currently no vaccine or cure.
