What is HIV ?

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that attacks the immune system and can lead to the development of AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). It is primarily spread through sexual contact, sharing of needles, or from an infected mother to her baby during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding. HIV weakens the immune system, making the body more susceptible to infections and diseases. If left untreated, HIV can progress to AIDS, which is the final stage of the infection. Early detection, proper treatment, and risk reduction strategies are critical in controlling the spread of the virus and improving the health of people living with HIV.
