i heard that there is no cure for hiv or aids and dat u can die. how long does it take to die from HIV and AIDS im just wondering cuz i like to know alot of imformation 🙂

It’s true — there is no cure for HIV or AIDS. HIV is the human immunodeficiency virus. HIV infections weaken the body’s ability to fight infection and can cause AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) — the most advanced stage of HIV disease.

Some people develop symptoms shortly after being infected. But on average, it takes more than 10 years to develop symptoms.

HIV infection and many AIDS-related conditions can be managed to some extent with different treatments. However, at this time, no one has recovered from AIDS, and it’s still considered to be fatal.

Some people have lived with HIV for more than 20 years. Life expectancy is much briefer for people with AIDS who cannot take the new medications that are now available.
