In the three decades since AIDS was first reported, the NIH has been the global leader in research to understand, prevent, diagnose, and treat HIV and its many related conditions.
The NIH conducts and supports a comprehensive program of basic, clinical, translational, and behavioral research on HIV infection and its associated coinfections, opportunistic infections, malignancies, and other complications. NIH AIDS research is coordinated by the Office of AIDS Research and carried out by all of the NIH Institutes and Centers, in both intramural and extramural programs, including research and training projects in more than 100 countries.
