World Aids Day Dec 1st

World Aids Day Dec 1st

Health Weeks

The national World AIDS Day theme for Australia in 2020 is Now More Than Ever. World AIDS Day aims to encourage Australians to educate themselves and others about HIV; to take action to reduce the transmission of HIV by promoting prevention strategies; and to ensure that people living with HIV can participate fully in the life of the community, free from stigma and discrimination.

As a community and as individuals, there is a lot we can do in relation to HIV. Working in partnership with people with HIV, we can encourage others to understand how HIV is transmitted. We can support people to access testing, treatment and care, as we know that commencing treatment at the early stages of HIV results in better health outcomes and reduces the likelihood of onward transmission.

Pharmacy news

Germs are all around us, both in our environment and in our bodies. When a person is susceptible and they encounter a harmful organism, it can lead to disease and death.

The body has many ways of defending itself against pathogens (disease-causing organisms). Skin, mucus, and cilia (microscopic hairs that move debris away from the lungs) all work as physical barriers to prevent pathogens from entering the body in the first place. 

When a pathogen does infect the body, our body’s defences, called the immune system, are triggered and the pathogen is attacked and destroyed or overcome.

The body’s natural response

A pathogen is a bacterium, virus, parasite or fungus that can cause disease within the body. Each pathogen is made up of several subparts, usually unique to that specific pathogen and the disease it causes. The subpart of a pathogen that causes the formation of antibodies is called an antigen. The antibodies produced in response to the pathogen’s antigen are an important part of the immune system. You can consider antibodies as the soldiers in your body’s defense system. Each antibody, or soldier, in our system is trained to recognize one specific antigen. We have thousands of different antibodies in our bodies. When the human body is exposed to an antigen for the first time, it takes time for the immune system to respond and produce antibodies specific to that antigen. 

In the meantime, the person is susceptible to becoming ill.

Unlike some probiotics, it does not need to be kept in the fridge, as long as it’s stored below 25 degrees.
Qiara does not contain dairy, lactose, yeast, eggs, gluten, nuts, soy, animal products, preservatives, artificial flavours, colouring, sweetener or stimulants.

reminds us to use a combination of sun protection measures on days when the maximum UV level is higher than 3:
– Slip on sun-protective clothing.
– Slop on SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen 20 minutes before going outdoors (reapply every 2 hours).
– Slap on a broad-brimmed hat that protects your face, head, neck and ears.
– Seek shade.
– Slide on wrap-around sunglasses (that meet Australian Standard AS/NZS 1067).
