It is estimated that about one million people in the United States are living with AIDS, many of them undiagnosed. Around the world, the number of people living with AIDS is placed at approximately 33 million, of which around 2.5 million are children. Although educational efforts and improved access to medication have helped stem the spread of HIV and AIDS in some regions, millions of new cases are diagnosed each year.

The Encyclopedia of HIV and AIDS, Third Edition provides a comprehensive reference to all aspects of HIV and AIDS—with completely updated and reorganized material to best reflect the current research and understanding. More than 130 articles explain what HIV is and how it progresses to AIDS, what treatments are available, social and political issues, AIDS organizations, and much more. Also discussed are AIDS statistics from around the world as well as cultural issues in different regions that affect transmission of the disease.

Key topics include:

  • Abstinence
  • Bacterial enteric infections
  • Clinical trials
  • Drug patents and pricing
  • Global Fund to Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria
  • Immigration and travel
  • New approaches to HIV therapy
  • Opportunistic infections
  • Transmission of AIDS
  • Vaccines against AIDS.
