AIDS - The ‘silent but lethal tsunami’ of Asia

When looking at the larger picture it is clear that the failure to fight the AIDS virus will definitely affect the Asian economy on a large scale. The UN has warned that by 2010, 12 million people are likely to be infected with HIV in Asia alone and it is estimated that a loss of $29 billion would have to be faced by the Asian economies.

It is high time the governing bodies of the Asian countries take strong steps to fight the infection, which may wipe out a large chunk of their population. The Governments are required to face up and deal with the controversial topics of having sex workers, drug users and homosexuals as part of their population. Not looking or dealing with the problem will not make it go away, but make it escalade into something which will finally become uncontrollable.

The Asian continent has a very large uneducated population, which are still not aware of what AIDS, how it spread and what can be done to stop it from spreading. However with the help of government programs, strong campaigns and reaching out to the rural districts on scales that only the government bodies can succeed in doing, it is possible to tackle this epidemic. Its high time, we Asians look at giving a better Asia to our children. And perhaps the time is now that we as individual educate our selves first on the AIDS virus and not think it can’t happen to us.
