HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. If left untreated, HIV can lead to the disease AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
Unlike some other viruses, the human body can’t get rid of HIV completely. So once you have HIV, you have it for life.
HIV attacks the body’s immune system, specifically the CD4 cells (T cells), which help the immune system fight off infections. If left untreated, HIV reduces the number of CD4 cells (T cells) in the body, making the person more likely to get infections or infection-related cancers. Over time, HIV can destroy so many of these cells that the body can’t fight off infections and disease. These opportunistic infections or cancers take advantage of a very weak immune system and signal that the person has AIDS, the last state of HIV infection.
There are currently over 20 drugs licensed and used for the treatment of HIV, and these drugs are divided into one of six classes. The drugs in each class vary in terms of how they work against HIV. Most people on treatment will be prescribed a combination of drugs from more than one class – this allows the treatment to target HIV in different ways at the same time, making treatment more effective and reducing the possibility of developing resistance to any one drug class.
