What is AIDS?

Aids (Auto Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is a disease or medical term used for people who are infected from HIV virus and are in the last stage.

3 stages how HIV infection progresses-

1st stage- Acute Stage: It is the first few weeks from HIV virus transmission.

2nd Stage- It is a chronic stage. We also call it Clinical latency.

3rd Stage- AIDS: Only a person with contracted HIV suffers from AIDS.
