HIV/AIDS

NIAID is committed to the research necessary to successfully end HIV/AIDS. In 2015 alone, more than 2 million people worldwide become infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Currently, there are an estimated 1.2 million people in the United States and nearly 37 million people globally who are living with HIV infection. In 2015, 1.1 million people died from AIDS-related causes. Through our laboratories and clinics at the National Institutes of Health to our vast network of supported research at universities, medical centers, and clinical trial sites around the globe, NIAID is working to better understand HIV and how it causes disease, find new tools to prevent HIV infection, develop new and more effective treatments for HIV-infected people, and find a cure.
