HIV & AIDS

HIV AND AIDS

AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is caused by a virus call HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). The Virus attacks the body’s immune system, and as a result, the person with AIDS can’t fight off other diseases. There are three major modes of transmission that can result in the spread of HIV:

  • Unprotected sex with an infected person.
  • Sharing IV drug needles and works.
  • Prenatal Transmission

Healthy Living with HIV
