AIDS is a devastating world-wide pandemic. During the past two decades, more manpower and money has been spent on HIV and AIDS research, care, and prevention then into any other disease in history. As we enter the 21st century, it is hoped that our efforts will be successful in eradicating this disease.
We are continually being bombarded with new theories and courses of treatment, while the public awareness of the disease continually evolves and changes. It is important to understand where we have been in order to understand where we are going with this disease in the new millennium. However, keeping up with and interpreting this information is extremely difficult. AIDS UPDATE 2003 presents a balanced review of the latest information and most important aspects of HIV infection, HIV disease, and AIDS.
