HIV

What is HIV?

HIV definition and meaning on Health terms:
HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It weakens the immune system by destroying important cells (T-cells or CD4 cells) that fight disease and infection. The immune system then can’t protect the body from infections and disease. Ultimately, HIV can lead to AIDS, the final stage of HIV infection. In AIDS, the immune system fails.
