When is HIV cl ified as AIDS? What are the stages of HIV?

There are 4 stages:

Primary stage - where symptoms like tiredness and feeling sick all the time start to manifest

Clinically Asymptomatic Stage - no symptoms during this time, could take up to 10 years or so

Symptomatic HIV Infection - this is the patient gets really sick again as the immune system is overworked already

Progression from HIV to AIDS - the patient is now at risk for diseases like TB, Pneumonia and other oportunistic diseases and cancers arise
