On June 1981, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a report titled ‘Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report’ describing shocking cases of rare infections in five gay men from Los Angeles.
Later that year, several reports also involving a number of gay men in New York and California were also published. All the men in these reports were previously healthy but suddenly started to develop rare
Opportunistic Infections such as Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia (PCP) and some deadly cancers such as Kaposi’s Sarcoma. All these diseases seemed stubborn to treatment and therapy. This raised an alarm because all of these men were suffering from common syndrome. Treatment and medication failed on them indicating that their immune systems were not working and the diseases would eventually claim their lives.
This disease sparked a lot of arguments and debates as troubled researchers, scientists, epidemiologists and all human beings all over the world were shocked about it because the discovery of its cure was turning to a mystery.
The new disease spread like wild fire affecting people throughout the world and the affected were characterized by a weakened immunity defense which provided an optimal environment for attack of other infections which later claimed the lives of those people triggering the infection to be named HIV (Human Immunodeficiency syndrome).

Three decades later, the puzzle is yet to be solved as fierce debates, researches and vigorous palliative care for patients living with the disease are at the center of the storm of what became an epidemic killer disease which has claimed the lives of more than 40 millions of people globally while over 50 million are living with it.
