Eversince I have heard the term AIDS, it has always been coupled with another abbreviation which is HIV. I never really thought about knowing or confirming that whether these two abbreviations have any relationship with each other. Hence, just for the sake of my knowledge I would like to know that if I have to differentiate between AIDS and HIV then how I am going to do this.

     Before you actually know the difference between AIDS and HIV, it is better to know that you know that what these two abbreviations actually represent. Hence HIV stands for ‘human immunodeficiency virus’ while AIDS abbreviates "Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome". Now the difference between these two is quite easy to understand. HIV is basically the name of a virus that infects our body killing the white blood cells and goes on to badly damage our immune system. For this reason, if someone is HIV Positive, he or she will remain HIV positive forever. Besides, AIDS is the final stage of the HIV infection when the count of white blood cells or CD4 in the body, which is normally between 600 and 1,200 drops down below 200.
