HIV causes AIDS. HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It breaks down the immune system — our body's protection against disease. HIV causes people to become sick with infections that normally wouldn't affect them.

AIDS is short for acquired immune deficiency syndrome. It is the most advanced stage of HIV disease.

Is There a Cure for HIV/AIDS?

  • There is currently no cure for HIV/AIDS. But there are treatments for people living
  • with HIV/AIDS.
  • If you have HIV/AIDS, you can take combinations of medicines called "cocktails." The drug cocktails are designed to strengthen the immune system to keep HIV from developing into AIDS or to relieve AIDS symptoms. These drugs are often very expensive, may have serious and very uncomfortable side effects, and may not be available to everyone. They only work for some people and may only work for limited periods of time.
  • But thanks to "cocktails" for the immune system and improved therapies for the symptoms of AIDS, people are now able to live with HIV/AIDS for many years.
  • How Is HIV Spread?

    HIV is transmitted in blood, semen, vaginal fluids, and breast milk. The most common ways

    HIV is spread are by.

  • having vaginal or anal intercourse without a condom with someone who has HIV/AIDS
  • sharing needles or syringes with someone who has HIV/AIDS
  • being deeply punctured with a needle or surgical instrument contaminated with HIV
  • getting HIV-infected blood, semen, or vaginal secretions into open wounds or sores
  • Babies born to women with HIV/AIDS can get HIV from their mothers during birth or from breastfeeding.

    HIV is not transmitted by simple casual contact such as kissing, sharing drinking glasses, or hugging.
