HIV: Human Immunodeficiency Virus

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, HIV cannot be cured, even with treatment. However, with proper medical care, HIV can be controlled with medicine called antiretroviral therapy or ART.
