Nursing Care Plan – AIDS/HIV

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is the most common secondary immunodeficiency disease in the world. First identified in 1981. The cause of HIV infection is a virus – the human immunodeficiency virus. Like most viruses, HIV is a parasite looking for a way into a cell, and to force the cell into making more copies of itself. These new virus particles then look for additional cells to infect, repeating the cycle as long as there are new host cells to infect.
