Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is the most serious form of infection caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Thanks to the advances in its  treatment, it has become a chronic disease and the quality of life of infected people has improved.

HIV/AIDS explained in first person

Professionals and patients explain how you live with the disease
The treatment can not cure the infection, but it can control it, and make the patient have a similar life to that of an uninfected person.
HIV does not define you, it is just something else in your life and you can live with it.
