HIV and AIDS Science

The science of how HIV affects the body

To understand how Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) affects the human body, researchers have spent time studying the virus using both humans and animals for trials.

Learning about HIV and AIDS science can start with understanding the virus' behaviour and life cycle, and the connection between HIV and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).

This knowledge will make it easy to grasp other aspects of HIV and AIDS science such as HIV strains/types, viral load, antiretrovirals, HIV prevention methods, HIV treatment and vaccine development, among others. The structure of HIV is made up of the viral envelope and viral core.

There is also information about the origins of HIV and evidence that researchers have put together over the years to prove that untreated HIV causes AIDS.
