2 How HIPAA violations affect the medical billing process 1 The illness first came to light in the early 1980s. By 1980, HIV had spread to at least five continents (North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Australia) In the 1980’s they did not have a name for this disease so they did not now how to treat it. Some men that were gay were all having the same kind of symptoms and they did not know how to treat it. I was doing research to understand the nature of AIDS and HIV and I found out that not only do people that are sexually active but, people who are into the same sex can still get AIDS and HIV.   HIV and AIDS have affected young gay men more than any other group of people. In the UK and USA especially, the percentage of young gay men who have been infected with HIV and the percentage with AIDS are much higher than those among other groups such as heterosexual people or children. Everyone has to be very careful on what they do. People who are sexually active and who do drugs need to go to the doctor and have a physical done to make sure that they are clean. I think that people should be with one person and not sleep around with different people. When someone has a very serious illness sometimes they will not want there information shared so they will not put any name down on the form that gives them the right to release information to the person that is on the form. Also when people find out that you have HIV or AIDS they will look at you different and think that you are a sex fen or a druggy and share the stuff you use. What everyone doesn’t know is that the only way some people get HIV or AIDS is from there mothers either from the birth cannel or breast feeding. Some people are very sick in there mind because if someone is told that they have AIDS or HIV some people will think that you are faking it just to get attention. Then some people will look at you different and also treat you different like you are
