What is the difference between HIV positive and AIDS?
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
HIV positive just indicates HIV infection (as evidenced by antibodies against the virus in the blood or presence of the virus as measured by viral load). AIDS is defined as HIV infection with a CD4 count of < 200 or 14%, or the presence of one or more serious kinds of infections or cancers.
