World AIDS Day 2017

1 December is World AIDS Day.

Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a consequence of infection with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) which is estimated to infect 3.7 million people around the world.  The virus targets the immune system and causes the demise of the T cells, which help coordinate immune responses, leaving individuals extremely susceptible to other infections and diseases.
