HIV/AIDS is an infectious disease caused by the Human
Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). HIV attacks certain
white blood cells called T-lymphocytes, leading to a
progressively weakening immune system. Once infected,
a person may have no symptoms for a variable period
of time, usually five to ten years, or more. It may take
anywhere from two weeks to six months or more after the
initial infection, before one is able to detect the presence
of antibody to HIV in the blood. However, the person is
infectious and can pass the virus to others even before
the HIV test becomes positive. Afterwards, symptoms may
include enlarged lymph glands, low grade fevers, sweats,
weight loss, fatigue, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. With
continued immune system destruction, a person living
with HIV may develop serious opportunistic infections or
cancers, leading to the terminal phase of HIV disease,
