Info Edit

    The prevalence of HIV among the population 15 to 49 years old is the percentage (mid-point) of those individuals living with HIV. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) weakens the immune system, ultimately leading to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. HIV destroys the body’s ability to fight off infection and disease, which can ultimately lead to death.
