When the infected person contracts the disease first, it is known as the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which is the cause of AIDS.

The disease developed in the 1920s mutating from the chimpanzee virus, then known as simian immunodeficiency virus (Bell, Selby, and McMickens 99, Aldridge 35). Records say that the infection was transmitted to humans during handling of bush meat, a major source of food for the native Congolese at the time. It was during the construction of the early railway, which required the natives to change locations with regard to the direction the railway was taking.
