What is HIV?
HIV is a virus that can weaken your immune system, your body’s built-in defence against disease. HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus.
Without HIV treatment, you can eventually become sick with serious illnesses. Maybe you found out that you have HIV because you were sick with such an illness. But with proper treatment and care, most people with HIV can stay healthy and live a long, full life.
Besides having to remember to take one pill a day, my life is virtually unaffected by the disease.”
