Essential Question: How do I protect myself against disease? Enduring Understanding: Students will understand that some pathogens can be very harmful to people’s bodies.
pathogens Germs that cause disease
Analyzing a Graphic Create a concept map that shows all the different types of pathogens. Provide at least one example for each one. Pathogens
In this lesson, you will learn to identify types of germs that can cause disease. describe what an infection is. explain how germs are spread. access information on communicable diseases.
Germs and Disease A disease such as the common cold is a communicable disease. disease Any condition that interferes with the normal or proper functioning of the body or mind communicable disease A disease that can be spread to a person from another person, an animal, or an object
Germs and Disease Communicable diseases are spread by germs. germs Organisms that are so small they can only be seen through a microscope
Germs and Disease Pathogens are harmful germs. pathogens Germs that cause disease
Germs and Disease When the body cannot fight of an infection, a disease develops. infection A condition that happens when pathogens enter the body, multiply, and cause harm
Kinds of Pathogens Viruses are not alive. viruses The smallest and simplest pathogens Viruses are usually made of genetic material and protein.
Kinds of Pathogens Bacteria exist in every environment on earth. bacteria Simple one-celled organisms Most kinds of bacteria are not only harmless, but actually helpful.
Kinds of Pathogens Examples of fungi include molds, yeast, and mushrooms. fungi Organisms that are more complex than bacteria but cannot make their own food Fungi thrive in warm, moist environments.
Kinds of Pathogens Many protozoa are harmless, but some can cause disease. protozoa One-celled organisms that are more complex than bacteria
Kinds of Pathogens
How Pathogens Spread Direct contact with others Indirect contact with others Contact with someone else’s blood Sexual contact Contact with contaminated food or water Contact with animals or insects
Mosquitoes can infect humans with West Nile Virus. Controlling mosquito populations is one way to help control the spread of West Nile Virus.

Finding the Main Idea Create a three-column table like the one shown below. As you go through the lesson, complete the table. STDSymptoms and EffectsPrevention
What Are Sexually Transmitted Diseases? Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are also called sexually transmitted infections (STIs) hygiene Infections that are spread from person to person through sexual contact
What Are Sexually Transmitted Diseases? The STD Fact File Someone who has an STD may not have visible symptoms, or may have symptoms that come and go. However, such a person may be contagious even when there are no symptoms.
What Are Sexually Transmitted Diseases? The STD Fact File STDs can be prevented by saying no to high-risk behaviors, such as sexual activity.
What Are Sexually Transmitted Diseases? The STD Fact File STDs can make a person sterile or infertile.
What Are Sexually Transmitted Diseases? The STD Fact File Not all STDs are curable, and some are even fatal.
What Are Sexually Transmitted Diseases? The STD Fact File A person who suspects that he or she is infected with an STD must see a doctor.
What Are Sexually Transmitted Diseases? The STD Fact File Vaccines are not available for most STDs.
What Are Sexually Transmitted Diseases? Chlamydia is often referred to as a “silent” disease because in many cases there are no symptoms. chlamydia A bacterial STD that may affect the reproductive organs, urethra, and anus Left untreated, chlamydia can cause infections in the body and infertility.
What Are Sexually Transmitted Diseases? Human papillomavirus (HPV) infections like genital warts are the most common type of STD. genital warts Growths or bumps in the genital area caused by certain types of human papillomavirus Like chlamydia, HPV is often a silent disease, causing no symptoms until many years after the initial infection.

Chapter 13 Communicable Diseases Lesson 6 HIV/AIDS Next >> Click for: Teacher’s notes are available in the notes section of this presentation. >> Main Menu >> Chapter 13 Assessment
The virus that causes AIDS HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) A disease that interferes with the body’s ability to fight infection AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency virus)
In this lesson, you will learn to explain how people become infected with HIV and develop AIDS. explain what is being done to fight AIDS. analyze how media messages about sexual activity might influence teens. describe how to protect yourself from HIV/AIDS.
Identifying Problems and Solutions After reading this lesson, identify how HIV is transmitted and what can be done to prevent the spread of HIV.
What Are HIV and AIDS? HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) attacks and kills T cells. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) The virus that causes AIDS AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) A disease that interferes with the body’s ability to fight infection
What Are HIV and AIDS? HIV does not kill T cells immediately. An infected person can have the virus for years without showing any signs or symptoms.
The Spread of HIV How HIV Is Spread Sexual IntercourseContaminated NeedlesOther This is most common way that HIV spreads HIV circulates in the bloodstream and in other bodily fluids The virus circulates in the body even before it destroys the immune system Abstinence is the only protection against transmission A single drop of blood left on a needle can contain enough HIV to infect someone Contaminated tattoo needles can transmit HIV People with diabetes and other who need to use needles should do so under supervision of a medical professional A pregnant female can transmit HIV to her child during delivery A pregnant female can transmit HIV to her child through breast milk Before blood screening, people sometimes became infected during blood transfusions
The Spread of HIV How HIV Is NOT Spread Swimming in a pool with an infected person. Sharing utensils with an infected person. Breathing the air near an infected person. Donating blood. Being bitten by a mosquito that has bitten an infected person. Hugging or shaking hands with an infected person. Using the same shower, bathtub, or toilet as an infected person. Sharing sports equipment with an infected person.
Fighting AIDS In the United States, more that 14,000 people die every year from AIDS. Scientists and educators around the world work to prevent HIV infection by teaching people about the disease.
Fighting AIDS New drugs work to slow the progress of the disease by preventing HIV from reproducing. Many of these drugs have serious side effects and are very expensive.
Fighting AIDS Scientists are working on a vaccines to protect people from HIV, but it will likely take many years to develop. The best weapon in the fight against HIV and AIDS so far has been knowledge.
Abstinence and HIV People who inject illegal drugs face the dangers of getting diseases. People who engage in sexual activity are exposing themselves to STDs. The only 100 percent sure way to avoid getting HIV is to avoid contact with sources of this virus.
Abstinence and HIV If you are pressured to use injectable drugs or have sexual activity, talk to your parents or guardians right away. Stay away from people who encourage you to make dangerous choices.
Abstinence and HIV Abstinence can save your life.
