What is the HIV Virus?

The HIV virus or human immunodeficiency virus is a virus that attacks your CD-4 cells. These CD-4 cells are a part of your immune system that fights diseases and illness. Once enough damage has been done to these cells HIV will turn into AIDS. If you think you may have HIV you should make an appointment with your doctor right away to be tested, while there is no cure for HIV there are treatments to help slow the progression.
