In the class meeting on Monday, the members of the clubs who participated in the morning publicity activities entered the class to spread knowledge about the harm of AIDS, the way of transmission and testing, and to tell everyone the importance of testing for AIDS among high-risk groups and the location of HIV testing. Through a brief publicity, students had mastered the relevant knowledge of AIDS prevention and control, and achieved the expected results.
Through this campaign, we strive to let the students understand AIDS, AIDS prevention, harm, transmission channels and so on to establish a correct understanding. In this activity, our members have been trained. We not only pay more attention to the knowledge of AIDS prevention, but also work together with other students to publicize. Although the weather is cold, our hearts are warm when we think of the profound social significance of the activity. In the class meeting, the students are listening to our propaganda, reading the manual, to understand the knowledge, I feel this activity is really significant.

Let's learn something about AIDS
What is AIDS?
The medical full name of AIDS is "acquired immune deficiency syndrome", which is called aids for short. It is a class B infectious disease caused by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
HIV is a virus that attacks the immune system. It takes the most important CD4 T lymphocyte in the human immune system as the main target of attack. It destroys the cell in a large amount and makes the human body lose its immune function. Therefore, the human body is easy to infect various diseases, and may develop malignant tumors, with a high mortality.
Ways of HIV transmission
Sexual contact: Unprotected sexual or oral sex with an infected person.
Blood and blood products: Import contaminated blood, blood products or transplant contaminated tissue. Share contaminated syringes, surgical instruments, tattoo instruments and other sharp instruments.
Mother to child transmission: Transmission of the virus from infected mothers to infants during pregnancy, childbirth and lactation.
