This Web site discusses the key findings from CDC, concerning the 8th Conference on Retroviruses and Oppertunistic Infections, that was held Feb. 4 - 7, 2001


Introduction

As part of its overall mission of reducing illness and death worldwide, CDC provides leadership in preventing and controlling human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection by working with community, state, national, and international partners. The Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention is part of CDC's National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention and coordinates CDC's effort in HIV/AIDS Prevention. CDC's programs include support for state and local prevention activities; a national public information network; education programs in the nation's schools; disease monitoring; and laboratory, behavioral, and epidemiological studies designed to identify the most effective interventions to combat HIV.  Major research and program areas include:
  • Basic Science
  • Monitoring the Epidemic
  • Prevention Research
  • Vaccine Research
  • Putting Effective Prevention Tools in the Hands of Affected Communities
  • State and Local Prevention Activities
  • School-Based Prevention
  • Prevention in Occupational Settings

As the lead agency for HIV prevention in the United States, CDC will continue to improve both biomedical and behavioral strategies to combat the HIV epidemic as it evolves.  Clearly, multiple strategies are required to maintain and improve progress in prevention.  

The HIV/AIDS section of the NPIN Web site is designed to facilitate the sharing of information and resources on HIV and AIDS for all individuals searching for prevention information.
