AIDS is the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome caused by one or more specific viruses in the family of human retrovirus. They are of the same family as oncoviruses but in a different subfamily. The virus is HIV. There are two types of viruses. : HiVi and HIVII.

AIDS is a serious disease because it occurs after a long incubation period; a silent epidemic that makes it very difficult to monitor and control, especially because there is no treatment that can heal it.

It is a set of signs and symptoms (syndrome) that emerge due to the impairment of the immune system (immune) that is responsible for defending the body against pathogenic factors. This translates into a significant deficit (impairment) which then exposes the body to all kinds of microbial infections (bacteria, fungi) and multiplication of cancer cells, generating malignant tumors.
