World AIDS Day

Celebrated annually around the world on December 1st. AIDS is a syndromic occurrence of immunodeficiency. This disease is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus. HIV weakens the immune system, causing the body to be unable to fight off mild illnesses. The term AIDS refers to the final stage of HIV infection; it affects the human immune system, against which concomitant diseases of the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and brain develop. December 1, 2023 At the Department of Pediatrics-2, an open lesson “AIDS Epidemic of the Century” was held with the study groups VM-PKA-01-19, VM-PKA-02-19, dedicated to World AIDS Day.
