Infection with HIV leads to AIDS after varying incubation times. The human immunodeficiency virus is among the complex retroviruses, and is classified under the subtypes of HIV-1 and HIV-2. The progression of HIV infection can be alleviated with the help of medication, as the viral load is reduced by these drugs; however, there is currently no cure for HIV.
