Many people are being diagnosed with HIV, which causes AIDS. This is a life threatening sickness that over 1 million Americans have, but not everyone is aware of its existence. Now here is a more in dept look at the definition of HIV. The H stands for Human, this particular virus can only infect human beings. The I stands for Immunodeficiency – HIV weakens your immune system by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection. A "deficient" immune system can't protect you. The V stands for Virus – A virus can only reproduce itself by taking over a cell in the body of its host.

Many campaigns were brought up since the start of this epidemic which is great to spread the awareness and to stop the growth of this disease. One of the most influential personalities of this problem is Magic Johnson, he has survived over 20 years with HIV and has brought nothing but positivity to the infected people to help them through this sickness and has spread a lot of awareness for the people who are clueless.

We still have a lot of work to do to prevent this disease, one of the ways is to get tested so that we do not live our life thinking that everything is fine when it is not. The solutions are so simple which means that each individual should do his part because this sickness affects the people around us so we should not be selfish.,April 25 2014,,April 26 2015,, January 13 2014,
