What’s HIV ?
HIV (Human immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that can dramatically reduce the body’s immune system. This condition allows diseases, bacteria, viruses, and other infections to easily invade your body. Unlike other viruses, HIV cannot disappear completely from your body.
HIV infection that is not immediately treated will develop AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). AIDS is the worst condition of HIV disease. AIDS is characterized by the emergence of other diseases, such as various infections that occur along with the weakening of your immune system.
