Do you know someone who has HIV? Having Human immunodeficiency virus or HIV is starting to become an open concept or topic in this day and age. There are now more people opening up about the disease, and many are listening to what they have to say. For people who live with HIV and the effects it has on their bodies, the prejudice is useless if not damaging because not only is it discriminatory, but it also makes them feel outcasts and socially unacceptable. One of the body parts that are easily attacked by these harmful microbes is the brain, causing different cerebral diseases like HIV associated dementia.
