HIV-AIDS patients admitted to the Ramblas Medical Center in Haifa doubled between 2008 and 2017 according to a study published in honor of the International AIDS Day.
Most of the 136 AIDS patients were immigrants from Ethiopia (37%) and the former Soviet Union (29%).
"Nowadays there are new medicines, revolutionary treatments, comprehensive research and completely new treatment concepts that make the disease chronic and curable," said Dr. Eduard Shahar, director of the AIDS Institute at Ramboued. "But, to our regret, there is a group of people who are unaffordable, disgusted or unaware of the available treatment. The report is clear and important – you need to check your health and the health of the people around you."
Since September 2018, another 90 patients have been diagnosed.
The report also found that 60 of these patients had potential illnesses because they did not know and were not diagnosed until they were admitted to the hospital.
"For this World AIDS Day, we are reminded of the need for community education to ensure the early detection and treatment of HIV / AIDS," Richard Hirschhaut, Executive Director of American Rambam Medical Center Friends.
It is part of a larger global trend where more people are infected every year. Despite the efforts to reduce the prevalence of HIV and the number of viruses in HIV patients has increased significantly over the last 10 years. This is largely due to virus growth in countries with low resources.
In 2017, 19.7 million people were living with HIV in Asia and South Africa, while in the Middle East and North Africa only 22,000 were living with HIV.
In the outbreak, approximately 610,000 children and adults lived with HIV. Although it is difficult to ascertain all those living with HIV in the former Soviet Union, in today's Russia, since 2017, the virus had 1 000 000 people.
HIV or human immunodeficiency virus is a virus that can cause AIDS, acquired immune deficiency syndrome. HIV attacks the immune system and stops the body's fight against infections. If HIV does not cure and destroy too many cells that prevent body protection against itself, it is likely that this person will have AIDS. It leaves the body unprotected against other viruses.
"They are unaware of the disease, are not being treated, and therefore they are diagnosed in a hospital after experiencing complications of immune deficiency, spending considerable time with medical uncertainty until they get the correct diagnosis," explains Shacher.
The International AIDS Day is being celebrated on December 1.
