HIV (Human Immunodefiency Virus) is the virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.) When people first started exhibiting symptoms of HIV and AIDS, doctors a…nd scientists had no idea what was causing the infection. Many people who were experiencing the symptoms were MSM (Men who have Sex with Men.) Before the terms HIV and AIDS were created, GRIDS was used. GRIDS means: Gay Related Immune Deficiency Syndrome. The term was discontinued shortly after its coining because HIV/AIDS obviously infects many people who aren't gay. The term GRIDS was dropped when scientists developed the AIDS classification. HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, was not discovered until years later.
