HIV Disease

HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. This is the virus that causes AIDS. HIV disease is used to broadly describe the disease or illness caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus. HIV disease compromises the immune system and if left untreated results in life threatening illness. While there is no cure for HIV, if individuals are diagnosed early and begin treatment appropriately, they may live with the illness, managing it as a chronic disease.
