The Origin of the HIV/AIDS

The root of the catastrophic epidemic known as HIVemerged back in 1920 at Kinshasa. The disease then spread across theAfrica and the world as a whole. The researchers engaged variousmethodologies to gain information including historical recording andthe genetic sequencing. Some views suggestthat the epidemic originated from the chimpanzee in earlier years.This effect remained to be a regional challenge which later spread tothe DRC. The research demonstrates that the railway line in thoseregions enabled transportation of the workers across Kinshasa, andthis facilitated the spread of the disease. Use of the unsterilizedobjects and urge for sex from the Kinshasa workers furtheraccelerated the spread.

The University of Leuven and the University ofBritain conducted a scientific research concerning the origin of theHIV. They reconstructed information was traced from the evaluation ofthe DNA samples. The DNA samples enabled the researchers to draw afactor tree back in 1950. The tree allowed them to trace theemergence of the disease via time and space. The result of theirresearch indicated that the virus indeed originated from Kinshasa in1920. At that time, people living in the central Africa did not haveany written document to supplement the information. Genetic analysistraced back the origin of the HIV back in southern and easterncountries(Prostetal., 2008).

Referencing other sources, Paul Telfer took atour with a researcher across a game reserve. The researcheranesthetized some of the animals in search of the sample. Hedescribed that there were different argument placing the origin ofthe disease although the common origin traces the source from thechimpanzee. The spread occurred due to the hunt of the chimpanzee forfood purposes.

In conclusion, researchers have developeddifferent theories that try to explain the origin of HIV. The societyand the world as a whole are unable to come up with a common source.However, the best theories that try to explain the origin of the HIVare regard as the sources(Gaoetal., 2012).Therefore, different magazines and articles analysed various methodsand claimed them as the primary sources of the HIV.


A synopsis represents a brief summary of certaininformation. Some journals and articles find it wise to use summary.A correctly written report enables proper utilization of time andresources. Magazines and articles facilitate mass communicationthrough use synopsis. Readers can skip information that they find notuseful to the members of the public. It is a moral belief among thesociety that an outline is always correct. However, this is a wronginsertion among the people. Most of the synopses do not cover thewhole topic or the main ideas on HIV. This has led tomisunderstanding of the information and alteration of the originalcontext.

For instance, the above commentary focuses on theorigin of the HIV. The article presented summarizes the informationinto a synopsis. Comparing and contrasting the original and editedinformation, omission of useful information may take place in theprocess. An infectious disease known as HIV originated from centralAfrica. The article describes that the disease materialised atKinshasa back in 1920. The paper does not present the mode of datacollection. The presenter outlay the information as the only sourceof the HIV genetic. Nonetheless, accurate information concerning theorigin of the HIV remains to be a great challenge. The synopsisillustrates the source of the HIV as a single source. This misleadsthe reader who does not consult primary sources. The presentationfrom the article does not describe the method used to analyse theorigin nor present the factual details. The choice made for theperformance does not favour the ordinary person. The presentationfavours mostly individuals who have some little informationconcerning the illustration. In my opinion, I would considerpresenting the information in full coverage. The information shouldinclude all the useful details despite the length occupied. The shortpresentation should involve factual details that areself-explanatory.

Therefore, a synopsis should introduce a topic tothe reader and the learners. Individual should extract usefulinformation from an outline and gather more details from the source.The framework created awareness among the public concerning theorigin of the HIV. This enables an individual who come across themagazine have a brief history that they would not have retrieved fromthe original sources.
