Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. It provides basic information about how HIV weakens the body’s immune system by attacking CD4 cells, increasing the likelihood of infections, infection-related cancers, and opportunistic infections (OIs). It explains that though there is no effective cure for HIV, it can be controlled with medicines called antiretroviral therapy, or ART.
