Subject Definitions

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a disease of the human immune system caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Although there is no cure for AIDS, HIV infection can be prevented, and those living with HIV can take antiretroviral drugs to delay the onset of AIDS.
If you have difficulty cooking meals for yourself, your council can deliver ready-made meals to your home. This service is sometimes known as 'meals on wheels'.
