An HIV infected individual with a CD4 count below 200 can have so-called opportunistic infections and subsequently die from them ( The global epidemic of HIV infection was first recognized in 1981 and since then advances in diagnosis, prevention and treatment have made significant impacts in reducing the burden of HIV worldwide, including in the United States.
