What is HIV?

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), more commonly known as HIV, is a condition that affects a person’s capacity to combat infection. The virus attacks the immune system, which is why the ability to fight off infections is compromised. The HIV virus causes AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), which is an unremitting and serious condition that is life-threatening.
