AIDS/HIV - Common Opportunistic Infections

HIV weakens the immune system, increasing the individual’s vulnerability to several opportunistic infections. These OIs may also indicate the progression into the AIDS stage of the infection. Common OIs are Kaposi’s sarcoma, Candidiasis, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes simplex virus, TB, malaria, MAC, and pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP).

At our support group, learn how to prevent these opportunistic infections, or if infected, the best ways to manage them. Interact with other patients facing the threat of OIs and also with doctors who will give you trusted medical advice.
