What is AIDS?

The full name of AIDS is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), which is a disease of the human immune defense system caused by HIV retrovirus (Human immunodeficiency virus).

When the human body is in a normal state, the body's immune system plays a good "defense" role against the body and resists attacks by various pathogens. Once infected with HIV, this good defense system of the human body will be destroyed and the defense function will be reduced, which will increase the chance of infection by various pathogens. Some abnormal cells in the body, such as cancer cells, also take the opportunity to grow rapidly and a large number of It breeds and develops into various types of tumors.

Therefore AIDS is called "contemporary plague" and "super cancer". The World Health Organization (WHO) and governments of all countries attach great importance to the prevalence of HIV among the population, investing the first personnel and funds for HIV prevention research. China issued the "Regulations for the Prevention and Treatment of AIDS Infectious Diseases" in 2006 and included it in Class B statutory infectious disease, and one of the infectious diseases for border health surveillance.
