      @255heaa27 thanks for the question

      HIV/AIDS was first reported in the USA in the early 1980s. Early reports came from San Francisco or California among the population of men who have sex with men. It was originally known as an illness to affect this population of people but it then later spread to heterosexual individuals (men who have sex with women).
