Not in the latest few months. There’s Ebola which is so scary and has become the main health issue. It comes from Africa and there hasn’t been a powerful medicine to cure the disease. However, we can prevent it by keeping a healthy life style and avoid physical contact with those infected by the disease.
Heart disease is currently much more prevalent and deadly than HIV. HIV research and treatment has evolved and people are not transitioning from HIV to AIDS near as quickly as before. HIV is avoidable if you practice safe sex and workplace practices in the healthcare field. Heart disease affects both sexes, young and old of all nationalities. Olympic athletes have died of heart failure, so it affects both healthy and unhealthy individuals. High blood pressure is dubbed the silent killer because people frequently don't know they have it until it's too late.
Definitely cancer, but HIV hasn't turned out to be even close to the epidemic everyone thought it would be in the 80s and 90s and people diagnosed nowadays usually go on to live full lives. I think we've got to worry about diabetes, heart disease and other stress and poor lifestyle-related illnesses.
