HIV (Human Immunodeficiency virus) is a chronic, sexually transmitted condition that affects millions of people worldwide.

HIV can be transmitted via human blood, sexual fluids, and breast milk.

If HIV is left untreated, it can lead to AIDS (Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), the most advanced stage of HIV, which can leave the body unable to fight basic infections and diseases. Preventative measures such as having proper sexual protection, taking medications preventatively, avoiding sharing medications/needles, and getting tested regularly will help drastically lower the chance of contracting HIV. 

Since the discovery of pre and post exposure prophylaxis and HIV testing, the number of new cases has declined dramatically. With the development of many HIV treatment regimens, people diagnosed with HIV can live long and healthy lives.
