HIV / AIDS in Alaska

By | November 2, 2012

HIV is a sexually transmitted infection that can also be spread by contact with infected blood, or from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth or breast-feeding. The virus damages your immune system interfering with your body’s ability to fight the infection. After years of HIV infection your immune system weakens to the point that you have AIDS making you susceptible to a vast range of other infections. There is no cure for HIV / AIDS, but there are medications that can dramatically slow the progression of the disease. Monday on Line One, Dr. Woodard and his guests will explore the basic knowledge of HIV / AIDS and the available resources in Alaska.
