The general information about AIDS.

Introduction Aids was first identified in the early 1980s, but the first case of the disease may have occurred much earlier - in Africa in the late 1950s. Drug treatments and public education have curbed its spread in some parts of the world. In Africa, most people infected with HIV are unaware of the fact.

WHAT IS HIV??  “Human ImmunodefIcIency VIrus”  A unique type of virus (a retrovirus)  Threatening a global epidemic.  Preventable, manageable but not curable.

WHAT IS AIDS ???  “acquIred ImmunodefIcIency syndrome”  HIV is the virus that causes AIDS

Where does Aids come from? Most researchers believe humans acquired Aids from chimpanzees which sometimes carry a similar virus - by eating them or being bitten by them. A minority view holds that it was spread by a vaccine made from infected chimpanzee tissue.
