Abstract

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, the cause of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), has become a significant threat to global public health, faster than any previous epidemic. Recent decades have seen significant progress in the global HIV/AIDS response, largely due to increased availability of treatment and targeted efforts to decrease transmission and incidence. This article highlights HIV risk prevention strategies that have been developed, implemented, and demonstrated efficacy in reducing the risk of HIV infection among adolescents, women, men who have sex with men, and heterosexually active men.
