Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks the immune system, making individuals susceptible to other infections and illnesses.
There are two primary types of HIV: HIV-1 and HIV-2. HIV-1 was the first to be discovered and is the most widespread type globally. HIV-2, which is more than 55% genetically different from HIV-1, is most common in Western Africa but is also becoming more prevalent in India.
Understanding the differences between these two types of HIV is essential in developing effective treatment and prevention strategies.
At BHA Medical, we understand the importance of early detection and accurate diagnosis of HIV. To support healthcare professionals in this effort, we offer HIV Test Kits for professional use. These test kits are designed to aid in the diagnosis of HIV in patients, providing rapid and reliable results.
