What is AIDS/HIV?

HIV, Human Immunodeficiency Virus, is one of the most rapidly spreading virus in the world. Already, over 31.6 million people have been infected with the virus. The virus by itself isnít harmful, but it weakens the immune system by attacking certain white blood cells of its host so that they become susceptible to infections. Pneumonia or even the common cold can become deadly or life-threatening. When the hostís immune system has been weakened and becomes infected with a germ or illness of some sort that gets out of control, the person is considered to have AIDS, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. HIV can be in a persons body for up-to 11 years before the person is diagnosed with AIDS.
