For a clearer picture, it is considered as three separate epidemics instead of one. The first is an epidemic with regards to the spread of virus where an increasing number of new infections each day. The second is an epidemic of whose infections have progressed to the terminal stages and thirdly is an epidemic of the social, economic, and political reactions of people towards HIV/AIDS.
