Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome developed from Human Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV) is a disease of the human immune system. ADIS is the serious final stage f HIV.

HIV can be transmitted into many ways such as vaginal, oral or anal sex, blood transfusions, contaminated needles or indirect contact through solid particles, exchange between mother and baby during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
