Facts about AIDS…

  • HIV causes AIDS. You cannot get AIDS unless you have HIV
  • HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) targets the immune system, infecting the CD4 or T-cells, which protect your body from illness
  • HIV progresses into AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) when your immune system loses too many CD4. It can take up to 10 years for HIV to cause AIDS, even without treatment
  • AIDS can be classified when your CD4 count drops below 200 (normal 600-1500) or when you develop one of the classified opportunistic infections (OI). If you have one of these infections, but are not HIV positive, then you don’t have AIDS.
