The Human immunodeficiency virus causes AIDS, acquired immunodeficiency disorder, in which the immune system becomes unable to fight off disease.  HIV is primarily spread by sexual contact. Less than 1% of medical professionals become infected through working exposure. It is not spread by casual contact such as a handshake, sharing food, or toilet seats. There is no vaccination or cure for HIV.
