HIV is the virus that causes AIDS

HIV weakens your body's defense system, which makes it condensed for your corpse to battle off other condition problems that it could normally prevent. As period goes on, your corpse becomes less able to battle off diseases.

Today, women account for about 1 in 4 new HIV/AIDS cases in the United States. Of these newly infected women, about 2 in 3 are African-American. Most of these women got HIV from having unprotected sex with a man.

Some reasons why African-American women are artificial by HIV/AIDS more than women of other races comprise:
   Poverty — One in 4 African-American women lives in poverty, which is strongly linked to HIV danger. People living in poverty also get lower-quality condition anxiety in general, which can mean advancing from HIV infection to AIDS more rapidly.
   Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) — HIV is most commonly spread to women through sexual conjunction. Untreated STIs that break the skin, such as genital herpes, give HIV simple access into the bloodstream. African-American women have high rates of many STIs.
   The number of people living with HIV (prevalence) in African-American communities and the fact that African-Americans are more likely to have sex with partners of the same race (compared to other groups) means that African-Americans visage a greater danger of HIV infection with each new reproductive encounter.
