Does an aids serology test only look for the aids virus or does it look to see if you are HIV positive?

Confusion. There is no such thing as the aids virus - there never was. The virus is HIV - human immunodeficiency virus. If you're hiv+, you have hiv. Aids (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is the condition resulting from HIV - your immune system is so weakened that you are susceptible to opportunistic infections and get other health problems. So, serology is for HIV viral load and its target, cd 4 cells.
