  31. 31. WHO.FactSheet.Updated.Nov2014 An HIV test reveals infection status by detecting the presence or absence of antibodies to HIV in the blood. Antibodies are produced by an individual’s immune system to fight off foreign pathogens.
  32. 32. WHO.FactSheet.Updated.Nov2014 Period during which antibodies to HIV are still being produced and are not yet detectable. It is usually 3-6 weeks . THE WINDOW PERIOD
  33. 33. WHO.FactSheet.Updated.Nov2014 This early period of infection represents the time of greatest infectivity, but transmission can occur during all stages of the infection.
  34. 34. WHO.FactSheet.Updated.Nov2014 If someone has had a recent possible HIV exposure, retesting should be done after 6 weeks to confirm test results, which enables sufficient time to pass for antibody production in infected individuals.

  46. 46.  Anti-retroviral treatment keeps the amount of HIV in the body at a low level.  It stops any weakening of the immune system and allows it to recover from any damage that HIV might have caused already.  The drugs are often referred to as: anti-retrovirals, ARVs, anti-HIV or anti-AIDS drugs.
  47. 47.  HIV can be suppressed by combination ART consisting of 3 or more ARV drugs.  ART does not cure HIV infection.  It gives the individual capacity to fight off infections.  With ART, people living with HIV can live healthy and productive lives.
  48. 48. When a HIV-positive person is on an effective ART regimen, the risk of transmitting the virus to their uninfected sexual partner can be reduced by 96%.
  49. 49. To prevent progression of HIV to AIDS is the main aim of treatment.
  50. 50. WHO.FactSheet.Updated.Nov2014 Without treatment, they could also develop severe illnesses such as tuberculosis, cryptococcal meningitis, and cancers such as lymphomas and Kaposi's sarcoma, among others.
