The result of HIV infection is relentless destruction of the immune system leading to onset of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The AIDS epidemic has already resulted in the deaths of over half of its victims. All HIV-infected persons are at risk of illness and death from opportunistic infections and neoplastic complications as a consequence of the inevitable manifestations of AIDS (Moss, & Bacchetti, 1989).
