Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome also known as Aids is a disease of the human immune system. The virus that attacks the human body is human immunodeficiency or HIV. This disease causes the immune system to slowly wear off or reduce the effect. With the body without the immune system it will cause the body to be infected by opportunistic infections and tumors. HIV can be spread through a direct contact of the bloodstream with a bodily fluid containing HIV. For example HIV can be in the blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre seminal fluid, and the breast milk. Today AIDS has become a pandemic. In 2007, there was an estimate of 33.2 million people worldwide lived with the disease. Also there was an estimate that AIDS has killed about 2.1 million people. Today there have been treatments to slow the process of the disease, but there has not been a vaccine or cure just yet.

 

SYMPTOMS:

People with AIDS often are affected by systematic symptoms of infections like sweats, fevers, swollen glands, chills, weakness, and weight loss. The symptoms are primarily the result of conditions that do not normally form in people with a healthy immune system.
