Enable Education:

The Truth Pandemic campaign is part of an ongoing educational initiative to encourage public awareness about the facts regarding HIV transmission and orphans living with HIV/AIDS. Project HOPEFUL believes that education is key to addressing the needs of orphans with HIV and families/individuals who would seek to adopt them.



What you need to know:

`HIV is considered a chronic but manageable disease with proper treatment.
`Children who receive treatment are expected to live a normal lifespan.
`HIV has never been transmitted in normal family living conditions.
`You NEVER have to fear contracting HIV through casual contact with an HIV+ person.
`HIV is spread in three main ways: sexual contact, IV drug use through the sharing of dirty needles,
mother to infant (pregnancy, birth or breast feeding.)
`All around the world orphans are overlooked for adoption because of their HIV+ status.
`Medications called ARVs can mean the difference between life and death.
`The combination of three or more ARVs is called HAART. (Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy)
`With medications HIV can be effectively managed to the point that the virus is undetectable in laboratory tests.
`There is a term for the miraculous transformation HIV+ people undergo when they begin receiving the medications they need.
The Lazarus Effect is a term commonly used to describe people who were once on the brink of death who have been restored again to health through medication.
