What is HIV?

HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency. HIV is a virus that attacks cells that help the body fight infection, making a person more vulnerable to other infections and diseases. It is spread by contact with certain bodily fluids or a person with HIV through unprotected sex, through sharing injection drug equipment, or from a mother to a baby during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Currently there is no cure for HIV, and without treatment, HIV can gradually destroy the immune system and progress to AIDS. However, people with HIV who take HIV medicine as prescribed can live long and healthy lives and will not transmit HIV to their HIV-negative partners through sex.
