HIV infoWhat is HIV?

HIV is an illness that at-
tacks the immune system causing people to get sick from other diseases.  HIV is usually spread through sex with an infected person or by sharing needles for drugs like heroin.   HIV is not curable yet, but it IS manageable if it is caught early enough.  Which is why it’s important to get tested regularly.
