Nowadays diseases have become more fatal than they were before, and that is why Health Care is a must. Being a Doctor, Gail Barouh is passionate about Healthcare and even holds experience in the counseling field. She was a CEO and President of The Long Island Association for AIDS Care (LIAAC), which is an organization that helps people suffering from HIV/AIDS. Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a Sexually transmitted disease caused by a virus called Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). This virus alters the immune system making the patient more vulnerable to infections and diseases. HIV infection is the root cause of AIDS, However, if the person suffering from this virus is well treated then the Virus can be contracted. Without any treatment, HIV can progress and eventually it will develop into AIDS.
