HIV (AIDS)

AIDS: Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome

HIV

Infection from the HIV virus that causes AIDS is possible through sexual contact with people who are carriers of the virus and/or from infected needles. Although there is still no treatment available for this disease, medications have improved the quality of life of both carriers and patients.

Avoid having multiple sexual relationships and always using a condom are the most effective ways of protection from this life-threatening virus.
