The article does not say aids - it say HIV.
A distinction without a difference. The only time I am aware of that having the infectious organism isn't considered a disease. If you are infected with Hepatitis B virus, you have Hepatitis B even if assymptomatic. If you have Plasmodium Falciparum in your RBC's or liver you have Malaria, even if you have no crisis. This HIV AIDS distinction is a political legacy of the early days when we did not have an organism and diagnosis was based of clinical findings. It's medically meaningless now.

Apparently you are totally ignorant on the difference between HIV positive and AIDS. Some can live forever with HIV but if you have AIDS (a syndrome - NOT a disease) you are most likely already dying.
