You’ve probably heard about AIDS, but do you know how it’s caused, what it does to the human body, and how you can prevent it? Tim and Moby will teach you all this - and more - in this BrainPOP movie on AIDS, the acquired immune deficiency syndrome. You’ll learn exactly how the HIV virus attacks the body’s immune system, weakening it so other diseases can cause damage, and you’ll find out how you can and can't catch HIV. In addition, you’ll learn about treatments being prescribed for AIDS patients - and why people with AIDS are living longer today than ever before.
