Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) attacks your immune system cells, hurting your body’s ability to fight off infections. HIV causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a chronic, life-threatening condition.
HIV is transferred through blood, breastmilk, and sexual bodily fluids like semen. Medicines can help slow the progression of HIV for many years, reducing the risk for AIDS.
