HIV known as Human Immunodeficiency Virus, which means you have the virus and can pass it on. On the other hand, AIDS acronym for Acqured Immune Deficiency Syndrome  which is not a single disease but a spectrum of diseases caused by having reduced immunity due to HIV.

HIV - Human Immunodeficiency Virus is a virus consisting of only protein and RNA that enters your CD4 T-Cells and inserts it's RNA into the cell's genome. Then it uses the cell's replicative capabilities to clone itself until the cell finally "bursts" and the virus spreads further in the same manner.

AIDS - Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome is a stage in HIV in which the HIV has already spread throughout the immune system and caused a weak immune system. Getting sick or ill at this point can be fatal because your body cannot respond to sickness without the help of the CD4 T-Cells. These cells act as a warning system and also identify pathogens. They can be viewed as the Military Intelligence of the immune system.
