What is difference between AIDS and HIV?
HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus
HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus and it refers to the bug that gets spread when someone actually gets infected by HIV. In some very rare cases, those who have HIV may have no negative effects. AIDS, or Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, is the disease that the virus causes. It basically wrecks your body's immune system and turns otherwise harmless diseases into something dangerous.
