HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. Overtime, the virus breaks down the immune system which is our body's mechanism against disease. This will lead to becoming sick with infections that normally wouldn't affect a healthy invididual.
There is no cure for HIV. However there are a variety of treatment options available which will suppress the activity of the virus in the body and help your immune system fight off other infections.
