As HIV/AIDS reproduces, it damages the body’s immune system and the body becomes susceptible to illness on infection. Human immune virus (HIV) disease was first described in 1981 among two groups: In San Francisco and the other in New York City. The disease was named acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) according to DR Dixon Patrick in this book “the truth about AIDS” where he noted that, “it took sometime to discover that the culprit was a tinny virus called Human Immune Deficiency Virus (HIV)” it was later known that some one can be infected with the HIV ten years , fifteen or can more years before developing the illness called AIDS. According to United Nations acquired immune deficiency syndrome (UNAIDS) and world health organization (WHO) 2000, HIV is alleged to have been transmitted from monkeys to humans most especially the black and grey monkeys of West Africa. This could have been as a result 1 of kissing sexual intercourse or eating flesh of these monkeys. The same monkey is traced in east Africa especially on Kenya~Uganda borders.
