the life expectancy of people living with HIV and caused a dramatic drop in AIDS deaths. However, without medical care, HIV still leads to AIDS and early death. Since the beginning of the epidemic, nearly , people with AIDS in the United States have died, and even today, nea people with AIDS in the United States die each year.   Mental health refers to a person's overall emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Good mental health helps people make healthy choices, reach personal goals, develop healthy relationships, and cope with stress.

As noted in Chapter 1, the global HIV/AIDS epidemic consists of many separate, individual epidemics spread unevenly through sub-Saharan Africa, each with its own distinct characteristics that depend on geography, the specific population affected, the frequencies of risk behaviors and practices, and the temporal introduction of the addition, biological factors may influence the spread. HIV has been shown to have evolved from or be closely related to the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) in West Central Africa sometime in the early 20th century. HIV was discovered in the s by the French scientist Luc Montagnier. Before the s, HIV was an unknown deadly disease.

When people get HIV and don't receive treatment, they will typically progress through three stages of disease. Medicine to treat HIV, known as antiretroviral therapy (ART), helps people at all stages of the disease if taken the right way, every day, and treatment can slow or prevent progression from one stage to the ent can also dramatically reduce the chance of transmitting HIV. UN staff members with AIDS should enjoy health and social protection in the same manner as other UN employees suffering from serious illness. HIV/AIDS screening, whether direct (HIV testing), indirect (assessment of risk behaviours) or asking questions about tests already taken, should not be required.
