City of Virginia Beach Behavioral Health Wellness and Prevention Services HIV-Program
with Robert Hewitt, Human Service Educator
World AIDS Day was recognized in 1988 as the first-ever global health day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It has since been observed each year on Dec. 1. Since the first case of AIDS was reported in the United States in 1981, more than 700,000 people have died in the U.S. from HIV-related illness.
Passionate about teaching communities about the existence of HIV, Robert Hewitt is here to walk us through some of the important things you need to know.
-What is HIV?
-What is the main difference between HIV and AIDS?
-What symptoms are we looking for in a patient?
-What areas can we check for HIV?
-What activities transmit HIV?
-How can we get tested for HIV?
