Welcome to Our HIV Management Center

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a viral infection that attacks the immune system, specifically CD4 cells, which play a crucial role in defending the body against diseases. Over time, untreated HIV can progress to AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), which is the most advanced stage of HIV infection. It is important to note that with early diagnosis and proper treatment, individuals with HIV can lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
