AIDS is most dangerous condition were caused by the infection Human immune
deficiency virus (HIV). It can damages a person's immune system and its ability to fight against disease. HIV takes years to weaken a person’s immune system causing AIDS. Though there is no cure for AIDS diseases, medications can help to slow down
the development of this disease. It can caused by HIV and it damages human body CD4 cells it’s a type of white blood cells that play a vital role to fight against the disease. HIV virus kills these CD4 cells weakening a person's immune system. AIDS
is contracted through sexual contact, blood transfusions, sharing common needles, breast feeding and pregnancy. A person may get infected by HIV if they have a sexual contact i.e. vaginal, anal or oral sex with an infected partner whose semen or vaginal
secretion or blood enters the body.
This HIV is a sexually transmitted infection. It can also be spread by contact with infected blood or from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth. It can take years before HIV weakens your immune system to the point that you have AIDS.
In some people, persistent swelling of lymph nodes occurs during clinical latent HIV. Otherwise, there are no specific signs and symptoms. HIV remains in the body, however, and in infected white blood cells. A few people stay in this stage even longer, but others progress to more severe disease much sooner.
