How to use "Acquired immune deficiency syndrome" in context?

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a serious, life-threatening condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV attacks the immune system, and over time, the virus destroys the body's natural defense system. This leaves people with AIDS vulnerable to other infections and diseases. AIDS can eventually lead to death. AIDS is most commonly found in people who are age 35 and older. However, HIV can also occur in young people, especially those who have sex with men. AIDS is a global epidemic, and it is continuing to grow in both numbers and severity.
