Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is a syndrome of one or more diseases brought on by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The virus works by attaching to the victim's immune system cells, replicating, and injecting its own genetic code into the cell. Thus, the immune system is weakened, eventually to the point where simple infections and diseases become life threatening. The only way a person can get this disease is either by; Exchanging body fluids with an infected person (i.e. Blood, semen, vaginal fluids) and getting it into their bloodstream or body. This can happen by using needles which have been infected, sexual intercourse with an infected member, or Other forms of exposed contact to infected materials/fluids. While there are many people who would say otherwise, the people who are in the highest risk group of getting AIDS are homosexual males and people with multiple sexual parters. The main reason with male homosexual intercourse is there may be accompanying tears and fissures in the lining of the anus, which maximizes the spread of the virus into the body. In fact according to reports done by researchers, 84-87 percent of all AIDS victims in the United States are homosexual men. While in other places in the world, such as Africa, there is an astonishing rate of infection, mainly due to the sexual promiscuity in some areas of the continent.
In the U.S. there are currently 3,600+ children under age 5 who have AIDS, most of whom have recieved it from being born of an infected mother.

A very dangerous disease that currently can't be cured. It will destroy your immune system until even a cold can kill you.

Contrary to what most of these homophobic twelve-year-olds added as the definition, AIDS can be aquired through any form of sex with a carrier. In fact, you don't even have to have sex. Just sharing blood or drinking breastmilk (This applies to everyone, not just babies) can give you AIDS.
Homophobic Middle Schoolers should learn a little bit more about AIDS before they add some retarded definition to Urban Dictionary.

AIDS is a virus that was released to the public to control population from getting out of hand. The United Stated government then tried to blame it on a bunch of gays, simply because the government doesn't like them.
When the USA govemnment feels like they've killed enough people, they will release the vaccine that was created around the same time the AIDS virus was.

Don't blindly follow what your leaders say. AIDS is not a natural virus. They wanted to kill a bunch of people on PURPOSE. It didn't start in Africa, it didn't start with homosexuals.

A lab created disease, originally created to demolish the gays and black americans, by the government. No one wants to admit this, because we are ALL in denial. How do you think AIDS, just came out of "no where"? It didn't. Think about it.

A virus that was released to the public as means of population control; regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual preference or lifestyle. Very clever indeed.
In a clever attempt to blame the 'morally corrupt' for the spread of <B>AIDS</B> which would lead to a series of phobias, the medical industry further benefits from high-priced treatments, further sucking the income out of the wallets of those inhabiting planet earth.

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, caused by the retrovirus HIV. Transmitted by exposure to contaminated body fluids, such as blood and semen.

Anally Injected Death Sentence.
A rather cruel parody of Aquired Immune Difficiency Syndrome.

Aquired Immmune Deficiency Syndrome - late stage progression of HIV infection. Transmissable through bodily fluid exchange or blood to blood contact. Least concentration in bodily excretory products, low concentration in saliva (and one's own saliva may provide some protection) in vaginal secretions (though still present) highest concentration in semen. Crosses across gender, age and socio-econimic boundaries, though usually more quickly progressing the lower down the ladder the sufferer is, due to lack of access to medical care. On the rise in the 15-24 demographic in the United States. Easily avoidable, but thankfully more and more (in the United States) becoming a "chronic" disease like herpes due to the availability of more and better retro-viral therapies.
The comic Elaine Boosler has said "Wouldn't it be great if you could only get AIDS by giving money to television preachers?"
