"Hiv" in context

Hiv is a virus that causes a life-changing and potentially life-threatening infection. It can cause Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), which makes the body unable to fight off infections and diseases. HIV is spread when an HIV-positive person's body fluids, such as blood, semen, vaginal fluids and breast milk, enter another person's body. HIV is not spread through casual contact, such as kissing, hugging, sharing food, or touching doorknobs.

Most people with HIV are asymptomatic for years, yet still transmit the virus to others. During this time, the virus multiplies inside the body.
