HIV or Human Immunodeficiency Virus which causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) has taken a heavy toll on the health of many people around the globe.
Due to its contractible nature and excessively misrepresented stigma associated with it, has led to people with HIV/AIDS being turned down to their right to good healthcare and further they get subjected to discrimination, marginalisation and eventually loneliness.
People often seek solace in animals to combat loneliness and depression, and other physical ailments as well. In fact, it has been recognized by top medical authorities that pet therapy or animal assisted therapy can help people with physical as well as mental health conditions.
As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that pets can accelerate healing of people with HIV as well. However, there are certain guidelines which have been issued for preventing infections from pets.
