(subgroup of retrovirus) which causes HIV infection and
it acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV
infection leads to low levels of CD4+T cells through number

(MDG) and WHO's operational goal. In 2000, when the United
Nations Millennium Declaration was made, it was estimated that

6 of MGD suggests: "Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other
