"HIV" (or human immunodeficiency virus) means that you are carrying the virus responsible for AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) which is a combination of symptoms that may occur many years after exposure to the virus. Many thousands of people are HIV positive but do not yet have AIDS. Treatment can delay or prevent AIDS developing however and is vital in staying healthy for longer.
