Disease caused by the virus HIV/AIDS (Human Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) HIV infection is divided into 4 stages, depending on the related diseases such as: weight loss, opportunistic infections , malignancies, level of physical activity. The causative agent of the disease is the human acquired immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Diphtheria Diphtheria is an acute bacterial infection of the pharynx, tonsils, larynx, and nose. The disease can appear on the skin or other mucous membranes such as conjunctiva of the eyes, genitals. Severe lesions of the disease are mainly caused by bacterial exotoxins.
Influenza Influenza is an acute viral infection of the respiratory tract with common manifestations: fever, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, runny nose, sore throat and cough. Cough in influenza is often severe and prolonged, may be accompanied by gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea) especially in children.

Whooping cough Pertussis usually begins 1-2 weeks after being passed on from another child with whooping cough. The onset of the illness resembles a cold: fever, runny nose and cough, followed by a bout of whooping cough 2 weeks later.

Manifestations of the disease are: meningitis, hemorrhage, pneumonia, myocarditis and arthritis. Severe patients can die from bacterial toxins causing septic shock, endocarditis, multi-organ failure, sepsis... The mortality rate can be up to 7%.
Amoebic dysentery Amoebic dysentery is an intestinal infection that can be acute, fulminant or chronic. Lesions can be in extra-intestinal locations (liver abscess, pleural effusion...)
