Show full transcript for HIV and AIDS Stages video

When people get HIV and don’t receive treatment, they will typically progress through three stages of disease: Acute Infection, Clinical latency and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) is medicine prescribed to treat HIV that helps people at all stages of the disease if taken the right way, every day. Treatment can slow or prevent progression from one stage to the next. It can also dramatically reduce the chance of transmitting HIV to someone else.
