From May 13 to 19, the Stop / HIV / AIDS campaign takes place in Russia. Its main goal is to draw attention to the problem and stop the spread of a dangerous infection.
Doctors remind: HIV is not a punishment for personal sins, HIV is a reality that anyone can face. HIV infection does not know morality and does not act as a means of retribution for some personal sins. And only prevention is the best way to avoid infection.
But if the virus does enter the body, then its timely detection and treatment will help to preserve the lives and health of loved ones, as well as to contain the development of HIV and overcome the diseases caused by it. The main thing is to prevent the virus from going into the last stage (AIDS), when the body's defense system is finally destroyed and can no longer fight against infections and diseases.
As we were told in the territorial department of Rospotrebnadzor, in 2018 29,000 Gubkin residents underwent testing for HIV, which is 44% of the district’s residents. The analysis of the presence of human immunodeficiency virus in the blood is done both during the clinical examination and during hospitalization, especially before surgery.
The Directorate reported that from May 13 to 16, Gubkin residents will be able to take an HIV test free of charge at the CRH polyclinic building (from 7:00 to 10:00). Where to go – you will be prompted in the registry.
