Poster Information
Abstract: HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It is the
virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency
syndrome, or AIDS, if not treated. Unlike some other
viruses, the human body cannot get rid of HIV completely,
even with treatment. Thus, an HIV infection lasts for
whole lifetime.

AIDS stands for acquired immune deficiency syndrome;
it’s also called advanced HIV infection or late-stage HIV.
AIDS is a set of symptoms and illnesses that develop as a
result of advanced HIV infection which has destroyed the
immune system. Fewer people develop AIDS now because
treatment for HIV means that more people are staying
well.
