In 2019, the theme created by World Health Organisation for World AIDS Day was “Communities make the difference”. Communities should do their part by supporting AIDS patients and not discriminating against them. With everyone’s support, AIDS patients will not feel lonely and depressed and instead have hope that they will recover. As a company that specializes in essential oils, we would like to share these gifts of nature which will benefit those suffering from AIDS.
What is AIDS?
Before finding out what AIDS is, you first have to know what the HIV virus is. It means “human immunodeficiency virus”. It attacks your immune system, making it unable to deter common infections such as a flu. AIDS stands for “acquired immune deficiency syndrome” which defines multiple deadly diseases which will happen when your immune system has received serious damage from the HIV virus. Although incurable, HIV virus can be deterred if detected early.
