A Presentation Presented To orient about HIV, AIDS and STIs for Development of Knowledge, Attitude, and Practice for Prevention of HIV and STIs for College Students.
AIDS is the most severe form of HIV infection. HIV infection is considered to be AIDS when at least one serious complicating illness develops or the number (count) of CD4+ lymphocytes decreases substantially. CD4 Count: The number of CD4+ lymphocytes in blood (the CD4 count) helps determine how well the immune system can protect the body from infections and how severe the damage done by the HIV is. Healthy people have a CD4 count of about 800 to 1,300 cells per microliter of blood.
