Nutrition A High Priority in AIDS Treatment!

by Bradford McIntyre

    People infected with HIV or have AIDS need a quality of life that does not undermine their health. There are people dying due to the stress on an already stressed and suppressed immune system. There is added stress due to a lack of funds available to support nutritional diet and good health. Proper nutrition is necessary for HIV infected individuals, as those who eat well feel better compared to those who consume a less than adequate diet. Malnutrition can compromise their ability to fight off in-fection. We should be making good nutrition a high priority in AIDS treatment!

There are people living with HIV who are in constant need of medical attention due to the poor quality of food and water. Water must be clear of micro-organisms and tap water is not fit to drink by people with a suppressed immune system, as they are susceptible to Cryptosporidiosis and Microsporidiosis. There is a need and an added expense of purchasing bottled water for drinking and cooking. The lack of bottled water contributes to their disease. There is a need for affordable housing, providing a comfortable and stress free environment in which to live.

My concern and disappointment is directed at the lack of consideration given to the present situation of poverty, poor nutrition, inadequate sanitation and housing for people living with HIV. These issues are of the utmost importance to individuals who are infected with HIV.

A call for action is necessary. The present situation dictates that these are vital necessities for people living with HIV/AIDS throughout the world! A simple exercise in these directions and implementation would have an enormous impact on the fight against AIDS!
