For example: professionals who do believe (or just like to tell themselves they do) HIV is the cause of AIDS will openly admit they do not know HOW it causes AIDS.

To tell someone they have a lethal virus and that they need to take nasty toxic chemicals (aka "Medicines") for the rest of their life without absolute proof of such is extremely cruel.
The virus infects different immune cells. When it comes to CD4+ T-cells then it directly and indirectly destroys them. With these cells reduced the body's ability to fight infections, certain cancers and control different fungi/bacteria that live in/on the host is greatly reduced. This therefore increases the risk of life threatening complications and death. So AIDS is a set of symptoms and illnesses that develop as a result of an advanced and usually untreated HIV infection.

HAART has been shown to decrease viral load and helps maintain the function of the immune system https://journals.lww.com/aidsonline/...era_of.17.aspx https://www.jci.org/articles/view/5863 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9461195 The addition of newer drugs will help with this too https://www.cytodyn.com/media/press-...ved-in-pro-140
