Autoimmune Deficiency Syndrome ...

30 years ago no one had heard of it ... today it is a modern day plague. Wide swatches of the world are being decimated by this disease and there is no community that has not been invaded by this virus.

AIDS has no respect for age, race, gender or sexual orientation. If you are a human being, you are vulnerable.

The most effective means of preventing the transmission of AIDS is not to engage in sexual intercourse without protection.

AIDS can also be contracted through transfusions of infected blood, and the medical community has worked hard to prevent HIV contaminated blood from getting into the blood supply. Despite an army of researchers trying to find a tool that will beat it, the crafty virus keeps coming back, but there is hope.

Most notably, stem cell therapy has worked in at least one case that made headlines in 2011 after a patient in Germany treated with stem cells from a donor immune to the HIV virus was declared cured of the disease.

However, for the vast majority of people living with HIV/AIDS, a definitive cure is probably decades away, say experts.

Around the Web, check out campaigns that help continue to fight the disease, updates about successes in treatment, and preventive advice and tips for those living with HIV or AIDS...
