In brief: Virus v disease

Aids is the manifestation of advanced HIV infection.
The HIV virus destroys certain immune cells, cd4+ t-cells, and when those t-cell numbers get too low, the infected person begins to get unusual illnesses. This syndrome of illnesses is called aids. Straight people get HIV too.
