HIV Infographic

HIV is a lean, mean killing machine! This sneaky virus attacks one’s immune system while killing our CD4, white blood cells and infecting other white blood cells. Unfortunately, this leads to the deterioration of one’s immune system and could eventually lead to the development of AIDS :(. Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle pain, and sore throat and is common among all ages, races, and sexes. Learn more HIV below in the infographic I made with Taylor!

  1. Helen, Wonderful use of visuals that expertly connect to the content. Your presentation demonstrated understanding of the virus. Explanation of infection/life cycle of HIV needed a bit more clarity…there are many steps for retroviruses! Be sure to update your post and embed your infographic. Also, citations are required to ALWAYS be in MLA format 🙂


  2. I loved learning about HIV from your infographic! It was very detailed and helped me fill out my worksheet on my desired pathogen.
