HIV is an human Immunodeficiency Virus that causes diagnosed people immune system to become weaker and harder to fight against illness. Once a person finds out of their diagnosis the doctor or pediatrician finds out their viral load and T-cell count to figure out what kind of medicine to prescribe them
Most people who do not know much about this virus would say they mostly get the virus from having sexual intercourse but their are a lot of leading causes:

Looking At HIV More Positively
Many people are living healthy normal lives
growing to become older.
Being HIV positive can help reach out to others by increasing there knowledge
motivate those who are afraid to speak up and be heard
Is There A Cure ?
To my understanding there is not a cure but I believe that our doctors are trying their best to do what they can....but for now there is treatment
Are Diagnosed People Still "NORMAL"?
Having HIV does not make someone different...they are still normal people and can do all the things that uninfected people do. So I feel like people should not judge someone about what they have or separate themselves from an infected teenager.

Listening to them
Helping them gain knowledge of their illness
