The cost of treatment and the availability of treatment options in Jamaica means that there is a high likelihood that a  significant number of Jamaicans suffer and die from this disease,  in which the human immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissues.  Symptoms of this disease can manifest in different body systems, including jointsskinkidneysblood cellsheart, and lungs. It is very difficult to diagnose and treat, because of the multiplicity of symptoms. Persons afflicted often have to fight the stimgma of "you don't look sick" which complicates treatment and care.
