HIV/AIDS

HIV (or Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that weakens your immune system which is your body’s built-in defence against disease and illness.

Any person can be infected with HIV no matter of age, sex, race or ethnic origin or whom a person has sex with. HIV can be present without a person being aware due to non symptoms being present. During this time, while an individual may not look or feel sick, they can still pass the virus onto other people.
