HIV is called the Human Immunodeficiency Virus and this
is the virus that causes AIDS.
Over 60 million people have been affected with Hiv since it was first
diagnosed 20 years ago.
It is also estimated that between the 2000 to 2020 over 68 million people
will die premiturely from aids.
All persons infected with HIV can spread it to others through unprotected
sex, needle sharing, and donating Blood or other tissues. Infected mothers
can also spread HIV to newborns.

drug nevirapine (NVP) given to an HIV-infected woman in labor and another
to her baby within three days of birth reduces the transmission rate of
HIV by half compared with a similar short course of AZT. See also fractology.org
