AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and is known as an immune system disorder as it is caused by a virus that attacks the immune system. The virus’s name is known as the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, or HIV for short.

HIV is transmitted through direct contact with other bodily fluids that contain the virus, such as blood, breast milk, pre-ejaculatory fluid, semen and vaginal fluid. Babies in the womb of an HIV-infected mother can also catch the virus before they are born.

Because the HIV attacks the immune system, it leaves its victims vulnerable to other potentially fatal diseases, infections and tumours and this is what leads to the AIDS syndrome of illnesses.

It is not possible to diagnose AIDs or HIV infection on the HIV symptoms alone, and a medical test is necessary to check for presence of the virus.
