Abstract:   (64 Views)
AIDS is an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome caused by the HIV virus (1, 2). AIDS is amongst the major challenges of the health system in all countries. This health challenge has spread to all countries as well as to all age groups, especially the 25-34 age group. The probability of transmission of AIDS ranges from 70% by blood transfusion to 30% by sexual intercourse, mother-to-child transmission, and other blood products (3-5). People who are infected with HIV are in the window period for about six months, which means that it is not possible to detect the virus in their bodies via normal tests. In other words, people with the virus are not HIV-positive and may have no symptoms for 10 years or more, but they are carriers of the virus. However, rapid diagnostic tests have recently arrived at Iran.
