HIV (Human Immunodeficiency virus)

HIV infection is a chronic disease; estimates suggest that over 100,000 people in the UK are infected. It has a variable and unpredictable course, with a wide range of potential complications, rates of progression, and survival. Some patients remain free of serious symptoms and complications until they have reached an advanced stage of immunosuppression, while others can experience debilitating malaise and fatigue or frequent non-life-threatening complications throughout their infection.
