  • Description:
    Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a fatal infectious disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). People with HIV infection may develop multiple opportunistic infections, suffer diminished mental capacity, and require frequent hospitalization. Many are unable to support and care for themselves or for those who depend on them. At the present time, no vaccine can protect people from HIV infection, and there is no cure for AIDS. The AIDS epidemic was recognized in the United States more than a decade ago. Of all AIDS cases that have been reported worldwide, almost half have been in the United States. Between June 1981 and June 1992, more than 230,000 AIDS cases and more than 152,000 AIDS-related deaths in the United States were reported to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). More than 90 percent of these cases represented young adults in the prime of life.
