An Introduction to HIV HIV stands for human indecency virus. It's a very dangerous virus that specifically attacks the immune system. HIV antibodies produce CD4 T cells that destroy white blood cells making the immune system weak to fight other diseases. There are many ways for HIV to be transmitted like, sexual contact, utero transmission, breastfeeding, blood transfusions, and contaminated needles. However this comic will identify the virus through the act of breastfeeding.
However, when it comes to the transmission of HIV, the virus is found in bodily fluids. If the mother chooses to breastfeed, then the child's chance of HIV will increase because the child will be in contact with the harmful antibodies found in her breastmilk.
Man, I sure wish that kid would stop crying ALL the time! But he's probably hungry, the only question is, bottle or breastfeed??
Yes! Hello? Doctor! My baby is heating up! He's got swollen lymph glands, sore joints and muscles, stomach ache, and a terrible skin rash! Please hurry!
I'm sorry mam but you gave your child HIV. Unfortunately there is no cure but treatment will help it not progress to AIDS when the child gets older.
Take it from me kids, bottle feed. It could save a life!
