HIV/AIDS: Public Health and Society

There were approximately 37.9 million people living with HIV at the end of 2018. —World Health Organization (WHO), 2019

This review article collection was curated in support of AIDS 2020, the 23rd International AIDS Conference. The world's most distinguished scientists, policy specialists, community leaders, and activists collaborated to advance research and understanding of how we live with, treat, and prevent HIV/AIDS. For the first time, the conference was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This interdisciplinary collection spans decades and illustrates our increased understanding and successes in preventing and treating the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Through this lens, remaining challenges are identified and further reinforced by the current COVID-19 pandemic, including health inequity, vaccine development, and the lasting impacts on global society and culture.

Check out the 24 review articles from 14 Annual Reviews journals, addressing:

  • Mechanisms of HIV
  • A Pandemic Fueled by Inequality
  • Living with HIV
  • Preventing HIV Transmission
  • Vaccine Development
  • Therapeutics
