General HIV Information - HIV Progression
AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) is the advanced form of HIV.
A person can receive an AIDS diagnosis when their T-Cells fall below 200 and/or they are diagnosed with an opportunistic infection. A person with a stable, healthy immune system will have a T-Cell count of 500-1500.
Once a person is diagnosed with AIDS, this is their diagnoses for the rest of their life, even if their T-Cells are back up over 200.
