The age group that concentrates the most people affected by HIV has been declining in the province in & # 39; in recent years. They have between 25 and 30 years the majority of & # 39; those who were diagnosed while until recently was concentrated around the age of & # 39; 35.
This was stated by the owner & # 39; the Program & # 39; Provincial AIDS, Dr. Víctor Bittar Expressing this is associated with & # 39; & # 39 special way, a certain laxity in preventive measures. But he also warned that it is particularly striking that increased the number of & # 39; & # 39 by people, higher education who are diagnosed with HIV. This segment was 34.8% in 2017 and 31.8% in & # 39; this year.
However, Most of the new diagnosis are still people with & # 39; secondary education, this year 44.5% of cases.
The Virus & # 39; Human Immunodeficiency is the precursor of & # 39; AIDS, has been installed in societies from the 80s and scientific advances have made it possible to identify mechanisms to prevent and mitigate the impact treatments. There is also strong campaigns & # 39; awareness to work on prevention, such as what happens each 1 & # 39; December, International Day of Fight against AIDS. That is why it is impressive to continue transmissions.
The number of & # 39; and registered cases diagnosed this year fell sharply, however, clarify that the program is delayed notifications to explain the phenomenon and estimate year will close in & # 39; half of 2019.
So in 2018, 185 cases were reported of & # 39; & # 46 HIV and 39; AIDS, compared with & # 39; 296 and 61, respectively, identified the last year. Bittar warned that they estimate will reach 300 by the end of the year and the province presents a plateau about 300 new diagnosis & # 39; HIV each year for some time.
On the other hand, this does not prevent stagnation attention. Although there is information and access to preventive measures, the last 8 years brought record & # 39; new cases almost duplicate the previous decade.
Between 2000 and 2009, 1,432 new diagnoses of & # 39; HIV were reported in & # 39; Mendoza, while 2,573 were reported from 2010 to 2018.
"We do not have absolute truth, we believe that treatment was relaxed that people take as preventive measures, young people know x & # 39; is HIV and how to take care of themselves, but recognize that not always use condoms" , she said. But also, an important source of & # 39; transmission is oral sex most of them do not use protection because they do not believe that the transmission can & # 39; also effected & # 39; this way.
"Sometimes you know things but & # 39; the whirlpool in bed and not considered very practical occur with consumption & # 39; alcohol or other substances and do not know who they had sex" increased the program owner.
Index & # 39; maskilità
The men are still the most affected and in fact the last time increased the index of masculinity.
This year 75.68% of new diagnoses cis male (Biological men who perceive themselves as such), 21.1% of & # 39; cis women and 3.2% of women cross.
The index of masculinity, which already showed a significant difference between women and men biological HIV / AIDS, has increased this year. After sending several years a 2.7 although it & # 39; of & # 39 alternatives; small peaks, in 2018 he scored 3.7. This implies that any biological woman is 3.7 men with & # 39; this infection.
