Although progress has been made in the global fight against HIV/AIDS, the epidemic continues to devastate the United States and the international community with an average of 50,000 new HIV infections each year in the United States and an estimated 33 million people living with HIV worldwide. As the leading U.S. government institute for HIV/AIDS research, NIAID is committed to conducting the research necessary to successfully end the fight against HIV/AIDS.
