Understanding HIV/AIDs

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that targets the immune system. If left untreated, HIV can progress to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Unfortunately, there is no cure currently available for HIV, and once contracted, it remains in the body indefinitely. However, with appropriate medical attention, HIV can be managed effectively. Those receiving proper treatment can lead long, healthy lives and take measures to safeguard their partners.
