Some people say HIV does not cause AIDS.
Feb 12, 2002

I am writing a report for school about AIDS. My Dad said I should have who found that HIV causes AIDS and this should be in the report. Who proved that HIV causes AIDS? When I talked to my teacher she got a little mad when I asked her the question. Why should she do this? Trish Hernan

Response from Dr. Henry

This forum is for patients or their doctors to ask questions regarding their health issues. I suggest going to the library to read some books about AIDS or checking out the NIH website where they have information of the link between HIV and AIDS. KH
