HIV vs. AIDS: What is the difference?

See also

Over the years some have used the terms HIV and AIDS as if these are interchangeable and The Stigma Project is helping change this. HIV and AIDS are not the same thing and this group is educating the public in an effort to help everyone know the difference.

Apparently the term AIDS, which is acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, has been used when speaking of someone who has HIV, which is human immunodeficiency virus. The terms are not interchangeable.

Information here is shared on the Facebook page for The Stigma Project and tells readers about the group and their mission:
