Do you have AIDS if you are HIV positive?

No, you don't have AIDS as soon as you're HIV positive. Some people who are HIV positive never get AIDS. Seeing a doctor and getting treatments for HIV is usually the best way to keep your immune system strong. This helps slow down the HIV virus so you can live healthier and longer.
