Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), which is the late stage of HIV infection. It explains that if people infected with the HIV virus do not take medicines known as antiretroviral therapy (ART), the virus will weaken their immune system and progress to AIDS. The document lists symptoms people with AIDS can experience, and discusses duration and survival, viral load, and infectiousness if untreated.
