1.2. History of discovery
Immunodeficiency virus exists broadly in nature — many species of animals are infected by it. The immunodeficiency virus (IDV) which was found in monkeys is very similar to the human immunodeficiency virus. HIV appears to have spread to humans from monkeys infected with the immunodeficiency virus in the early twenties of the last century.

1.3. Description, structure and lifecycle of the virus
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infects cells of the immune system containing CD4 receptors on their surface: T lymphocytes (t-helpers), monocytes, macrophages and some others. After penetrating into cells, the virus begins to reproduce, which further provokes the destruction and death of infected cells. The virus escapes from the dead cells and infects new CD4 cells. CD4 cell count gradually gets so low that the body loses its ability to combat infections and viral diseases that do not pose a risk for people with a normal immune system.

2.1. Diagnostics and prevention
The HIV infection is distinguished by a long absence of symptoms. Diagnosis of the HIV infection is established through laboratory tests: by detecting antibodies to HIV. The first few weeks after the virus enters the body is the eclipse phase when HIV antibodies cannot be detected.
More
2.2. Transmission routes
The virus transmission paths are well researched. Gone are the days when it was thought that HIV infection is a disease that affects only drug users, commercial sex workers and men who have sex with men (MSM). Anyone can get infected with HIV, regardless of social status, wealth, sex, age, and sexual orientation.

Campaign U=U (#UequalsU)

The information and education campaign "U=U" ("Undetectable equals untransmittable", #UequalsU, #НравноН), organized by Life4me + in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region, aimed at disseminating information that an HIV-positive person with an undetectable viral load can not transmit the virus to another person sexually. Many studies have shown that in a sero-discordant couple where the HIV-positive partner took ARV therapy and maintained an undetectable viral load, there were no reported cases of sexual transmission of HIV.

Convenient, simple, reliable, informative

The app helps to establish communication between physicians and HIV-positive people. It allows you to conveniently organize your medication intake timetable and set concealed and personalized reminders, get doctor's recommendations, and schedule doctor’s appointments or blood tests. It also makes keeping track of your tests more convenient and allows you to always have them at hand. The GPS navigator helps you find a nearby hospital, clinic, or HIV community throughout the world.
