AIDS is caused by HIV, which is an abbreviation for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. The infection caused by HIV weakens the immunity of a person to the extent that he cannot fight even simple diseases like cold. When most of the T-cells or CD4 cells of the human body get killed, full blown AIDS is developed. This disease claims more than 1.78 million lives each year. Although there is no vaccine to prevent HIV and no cure for AIDS, education on protecting yourself and others from HIV infected fluids remains the mainstay of prevention.
