HIV /AIDS

What is HIV?

The Human immunodeficiency virus, more commonly referred to as HIV is a virus that attacks the immune system thus inhibiting the body’s natural defense against other infections and illnesses. HIV accomplishes this by attacking the CD4 (T-helper) cells, a particular white blood cell which helps the immune system fight off infections, and then creating copies of itself within the cell. If left untreated HIV can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or AIDS. AIDS is the most severe phase of an HIV infection. HIV is declared to have escalated to AIDS when an infected person’s immune system suffers so much damage that they suffer from additional severe illness.
