About 40 million people are living with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) or AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Each day, 14,000 more become infected. HIVdrugs have vastly improved the quality of life for many of these people, but they don't yet provide a cure. That's why researchers are working so hard to develop an HIV vaccine.
HIV is spread when blood,
semen, or vaginal fluids from an infected person enter
another person's body, usually through sexual contact, from sharing needles
when injecting drugs, or from mother to baby during birth.
