No. HIV is a virus, not a genetic mutation. It originated in primate hosts and jumped to humans as we entered into forests, cut timber, and feasted on these monkeys. People now get this virus from each other, via unprotected sex, unscreened blood products, sharing injection equipment, and from infected mothers to their infants.
