Abstract

The main aim of this paper is to awareness the people of Asia, especially India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, who have very little knowledge about Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and situation of this disease in Bangladesh. Evidences from previous literature shows that due to ignorance of the people, HIV/AIDS is spreading to the developing countries. An attempt is taken here to show the world about the discrimination to the civil societies and their effects of the spread HIV among deprived people. Yet no vaccine is invented to prevent the disease or no medicine is invented to completely cure the disease. Prevention is the only way to get rid of from this fatal disease. The origin and some treatments of HIV are discussed in this paper. The paper will give proper knowledge to the ignorant people to become aware about HIV/AIDS. The disease is alarming in poorer areas such as Africa, Latin America, Caribbean Islands and some parts of Asia.
