Not a person to mankind can determine the factual reasoning that AIDS and HIV rate in this world we live in are at a high of all expectancy. We will look at the stats or number of cases these numbers will alarm and shock the average individual on how infect this world is with this disease. With my detailed research I will deliver observation on affected population in the area of the Eastern United States.

I f not catch beginning stages HIV weakens a person’s immune system causing it to be no response to things like colds or sexually transmitted diseases and even cancers. However at this current period in life expectancy this disease is non curable and has to be treated accordingly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
