Can 17 Years Of Age Receive Anti-HIV Injections?
Is the age of 17 years allowed to inject anti-HIV virus? Then what are the requirements and if possible, how much will it cost?
Hello Siti, Thank you for the question.
Human immunodeficency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks the human immune system for which no treatment has yet been found. This virus causes the human body to be unable to fight infections and other diseases. Apart from not having found a cure, there is also no vaccination to prevent HIV infection. Therefore, to prevent the transmission of HIV infection you must avoid risky things that can be a source of HIV transmission. HIV is transmitted by:
unprotected sexual intercourse (condom) whether through the vagina, anus, or mouth with HIV sufferers sharing needles with HIV sufferers, for example for drug users who inject blood transfusions from HIV sufferers from mother to fetus through pregnancy and childbirth or from mother to baby through ASI Please you avoid the things mentioned above to prevent HIV infection. If you experience any of the above, you are advised to immediately consult a doctor through voluntary counseling and testing (VCT) services for HIV testing.
I hope this helps.
