AIDS causes the body’s immune system to be damaged, and as a result, compromises the body’s ability to fight off diseases and keep the body healthy, and thus can cause severe, life-threatening complications.
There is no cure for AIDS, but there are treatments to keep people with AIDS more healthy. This is why HIV prevention, such as safe sex, is important.
