    Too frivolous the topic. At least everyone today is already aware on how to keep themselves healthy and away from infection. The health education is ubiquitous nowadays.

    mkuu,nina wasiwasi na hizi takwimu zako za maambukizi. 90% ya HIV infectons ni kwa kujamiiana. 10 % ndo inagawanywa kwa kuzaliwa, vitu vyenye ncha kali, kuwekewa damu, ajali kazini etc(WHO, 2009). ungemwaga hizo njia za kujikinga hapa tungefaidika wote kwa ujumla wetu badala ya kila mmoja wetu kukutumia mail. tukumbuke kila mmoja wetu ni muathirika (kama sio sasa pengine baadae utapata hiv, na pia wapendwa wetu na marafiki wakipata hiv inatuathiri wote). nangojea kwa hamu ushauri wako ili tusaidiane katika hili.

    Millions of Ghanaians regard HIV/AIDS as a condition for the other person and not them. The thinking is that the condition is far away from them and as long as they did not engage in unprotected sex.

    The story was the same for a 26-year old apprentice until he tested positive to the condition four years ago even though he had not engaged in any sex.

    The young-man who looks like a 12-year old boy said his parents and siblings all tested negative to the disease so it took him several weeks to come to terms with his situation and suspected that his regular barbering salon might be the source of his predicament.

    A good number of Ghanaians visit barbering or hair salons to have their hairs done or for pedicure or manicure yet many do not care about the safety of tools used on them.

    Too soon, Ghanaians have become complacent about HIV/AIDS to the extent that they have come to care little about things that go on around them that could possibly be sources of HIV/AIDS infection.

    Some major stakeholders have claimed credit for "a hundred per cent" awareness creation though experts say comprehensive knowledge on the condition remains very low.

    Dr Richard Amenyah, Director of Technical Services of the Ghana Aids Commission, put comprehensive knowledge among females in the country at 23 per cent and 33 per cent for males.

    Many people still ascribe the disease to myths and misconceptions about the condition and still believe that juju and mosquitoes can cause HIV/AIDS.

    Awareness creation over the years focused on transmission of the virus through sex with little or no attention to other sources of infection.

    HIV/AIDS leaflets produced by the Ghana Social Marketing Foundation (GSMF) International states that five per cent of all HIV infections come from sharing of blades, needles, blood transfusion and other skin piercing instruments. The fact is that many are unaware of what constitute high or low risk behaviours.

    While many are certain about sex being a veritable source of contracting HIV/AIDS, they remain ignorant of or cared less about other behaviours such as going to barbering shops where tools are not sterilized as possible sources of picking up the condition. (Mind you some barbering shops have sterilizers but they are either not working or not effective).

    Many also patronize persons who move about cutting nails with un-sterilized equipment which could cost them their lives.

    They usually do not care about these risky behaviours but are interested in knowing other people's status and quick to stigmatize rather than show concern to people living with the condition.

    A popular barber in Ho told GNA that though he sterilized his tools, most of his customers did not really care about whether the tools were sterilized or not and that they were only interested in having good hair cuts.

    A random visit to some barbering and hair salons in Ho reveals that sterilizers of some of the salons have outlived their usefulness and could only pass for a container with a light.

    Some of the sterilizers have cracks all over with others broken and one wonders their efficacy. The visit also revealed that some barbers and hair dressers knew that their sterilizers were not working but occasionally put their clippers, pedicure and manicure sets in them to deceive the public.

    Another issue is the use of hair brushes, rollers and hair pins.

    It has become fashionable for barbers to occasionally brush the hair while they cut it and interestingly they use a common brush for everyone.

    Only God knows how many people might get infected when a HIV positive person got cut during barbering and got brushed and the same brush were on the next customer who might be HIV negative.

    Mr Bright Kornu, Volta Regional Focal Person on HIV/AIDS, said the situation where barbers and beauticians failed to sterilize their tools was serious and called for urgent attention from the district assemblies.He suggested to the assemblies to conduct regular inspections of barbering shops and hairdressing salons to check their sterilizing equipment and close down those that were deficient in the observance safety standards.

    Mr Kornu said the issue is more of a health one than HIV/AIDS and advised the individual to be conscious and to keep to one barber or hairdresser.

    Given the seriousness of the situation it is advisable for individuals and households to acquire their own barbering and hair dressing equipment as was the practice in the past.

    It is important that the condition is not seen as the disease for the other person but as close as possible to everyone.

    Documents made available by the Ghana AIDS Commission put the national prevalence at 1.7 per cent with over 60 new infections everyday. This is why HIV NGOs must push for greater awareness and behavioural change.

    Individuals must also be mindful of their lives especially risky behaviours. This Writer has decided to acquire a personal barbering set. What about you?

    A number of infection can occur during hairdressing procedures in hair salons. Hairdressing equipments such as razors, scissors, combs, clippers and hairpins can accidentally penetrate the skin of the customers. Blood and body fluids should not be visible on the instruments, equipments or working surfaces for infection may be transmitted through these instruments. Both the customers and the hairdressers can be at the risk of such infections.
    The hair stylist should take proper care if their clients have any skin lesions such as prominent moles. If the hair salons perform other personal care and body procedures, including skin penetration, then the operators must comply with the NSW Health Department's Skin Penetration Guidelines.
    There are a number of hazards in hair salons.
    The various risks in hair salons are:
    Infection
    Infection can be spread in the hair salon when the instruments and equipments used on customers are not properly cleaned or handled in a hygienic manner or when the interiors of a hair salon are kept unclean or are unrepaired. Infections that can be spread in hair salons include skin infection on the scalp, face and neck such as impetigo, also known as school sores and fungal infections such as tinea capitis and ringworm.
    Blood-Borne Viruses
    Hair Salons should avoid the risk of transmitting a serious disease such as hepatitis B and C and HIV that can occur while using razors, scissors or clippers. Contaminated instruments can transfer infection directly to the blood of the hairstylist or the customer if that individual has open cuts or sores.

    Burns
    Hair salons should avoid burns that can occur during hairdressing when hot rollers and tongs are used . Burns can also occur when hair is being washed with hot water or when stationary or hand-held dryers are used improperly.
    General Hairdressing Equipment in hair salons
    All razors and blades are considered to be contaminated with blood, body fluids or substances after use. Routine cleaning of razor blades is not enough to minimize the risk of transmission of blood-borne diseases. The safest and most efficient way of preventing the spread of these diseases is to use single-use items.
    Single Use (disposable) Razors
    If the razor is a single-use type, then it must not be used again on another customer and must be disposed off into a suitable container immediately after use.
    Single Use (disposable) Blades
    Where a safety-type razor is used, remove the blade from the razor. Dispose off the blade. The blade holder must be cleaned and disinfected. If contaminated, it must be sterilized or disposed off. Do not use the razor again until these measures have been taken.
    Electric Razors
    Electric razor blades are also contaminated with blood, body fluids or substances after use. Electric razors are therefore not recommended for use on customers by hair salons.
    Razor Haircutting by hair salons
    Razors should be used so that the hairdresser can see the blade at all times. Blades may scrape the skin and become contaminated. Razor blades used for hair cutting should be changed after each customer, and the blade should be disposed off into a container. The handle should be washed and dried after the blade has been removed; if contaminated, it should also be sterilized.
    Clippers used in hair salons
    Clippers should be used in such a way that the hairstylist can see the tip of the clipper at all times. Clippers should be dismantled after each use and thoroughly cleaned before being used on another customer. If contamination occurs then the clipper blades must be dismantled, cleaned and sterilized.
    Cleaning and Sterilization of Hairdressing Equipment
    Over the years many types of disinfecting solutions have been used in the hair salons. The use of disinfectants requires hairstylist to apply these solutions according to the instructions of the manufacturer's.

    I am not aware of any studies which have tried to determine how long infectious virus remained on a razor. However, transmission of hepatitis C is related to drug use, where there is a large exposure to infectious virus, or to accidental needlestick exposures, most of which occur with hollow bore needles. Therefore, the risk of transmission usually requires a certain inoculum of virus that is in a hollow bore needle.
    Sharing razors is not recommended; however, transmission from person to person through simple razor sharing is not documented.
