When is HIV said to be in the final stage?

I am starting out as a social worker among recently diagnosed HIV patients. For my knowledge, I would like to know... when is HIV said to be in its final stages?

I appreciate this question, as I started my career working in a medical clinic with HIV patients. A book I recommend is Handbook of HIV and Social Work: Principles, Practice, and Populations
by Cynthia Cannon Poindexter. It really helped me learn more about my role in this very important sector of the field of social work. HIV in its final stages is AIDS.
