Survey: A third of US teens don't realize HIV is an STD

Survey: A third of US teens don't realize HIV is an STD | Education | Scoop.it

Nearly nine in 10 US teens say they're not at risk for HIV, according to a new MAC AIDS Fund survey.

 

It's true HIV affects a very small portion (less than 1 percent) of the US population, but health experts warn that the lack of awareness about the disease could be one of several factors driving an increase in HIV diagnoses and infections among youth. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says young people ages 13 to 24 make up approximately one in four new HIV infections in the US, and about 60 percent of those infected don't know they have the disease.

 

The MAC AIDS Fund's survey of more than 1,000 US teens ages 12 to 17 found 88 percent of respondents don't think they're at risk of getting HIV in their lifetimes.

Organising time requires abstract thinking for young children.

Catherine Smyth's curator insight, September 12, 2014 1:15 AM

A timeline is a graphical representation of related items or events in sequential order and displayed along a line. Children need the opportunity to develop an understanding of this abstract notion through concrete and personal experiences.
