Bisexual people and gay people easily infected with HIV
France's le figaro, according to the latest outbreak of weekly articles, in 2012, the French nearly 6400 people were found positive for HIV/AIDS serological examination, including 1500 cases have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. The French national institute of health supervision (INvS) according to the years received the report, has made the estimate of the HIV/AIDS situation. Since 2003, the defects of the body's immune virus (VIH) of HIV/AIDS, the report will become mandatory and most AIDS cases (the height) of an infection starts in the early 80 s.
Between 2003 to 2008, the number of HIV infection had the very big margin decline, in the following year, gradually stabilized, but there is no weakening trend. Found in 2012, a total of 6372 serum test positive for HIV/AIDS, said 42% of the patients had sex, most of them are bisexual, in recent years, a growing number of bisexual people were found. Since 2011, the number of male patients with HIV/AIDS has a certain degree of increase. Those who have the stable heterosexual relationships, however, found the proportion of HIV is still very stable (56% of new cases), the percentage of people suffering from AIDS drug injections change also is not very big (about maintaining in the proportion of 1%). 56% of the patients with HIV/AIDS is infected through heterosexual sex, and through the way such as blood, genetic.
In 2012, in the new found in people infected with the virus that causes AIDS, nearly a third (27%) is a long time ago has been infected, just don't know. France's national institute of health supervision think the diagnosis of "late", almost all patients has reached the stage of AIDS, or CD4 cells are less than 200 cells/mm3. CD4 cells are responsible for coordinating the immune system; Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) will be involved in them, and their Numbers with the deepening of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection status will be reduced, if not get timely treatment. Today, France around 40000 people living with HIV, and since HIV epidemic began, a total of 88000 AIDS patients of France, and the number is very large.
Young people are most likely to HIV infection, especially young bisexual people: among the 2012 newly discovered AIDS, 70% are between the ages of 25 to 49 years old. Even if they are more likely to infection, but they also found that the earlier: the "late" diagnosis, mainly those over the age of 50 people, as well as in heterosexual men, these two kinds of people may feel that they are unlikely to HIV infection, therefore is unlikely to go to test, but this understanding is totally wrong. , by contrast, those who found HIV infection early in men, are often those who long ago with man same-sex behaviour.
Regional disparities are also continue to exist: you'll find the total number of population, the French island in 2012 found the number of people infected with HIV (account for 42% of the total), most the situation even so since 2003. Several other regional situation is not optimistic, for example, French Guiana, guadeloupe, Martinique and provence - alpine - blue coast, etc. And in addition, more than half of all AIDS cases are found (54%) appeared in France, the number increased than in 2003.
For one third of the AIDS patients, their HIV testing discovered the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the initial cause of signs (primary signs of infection or infection), especially those of heterosexual men in clinical symptoms. In those gay people and bisexual people, gay couples have virus checks are nearly a third of the patients due to blood test results. In the vast majority of patients (76%), with the help of the doctor, HIV testing were carried out.
