The HIV epidemic Timeline | Resources | Info

The HIV epidemic began with fear, helplessness and death as the world faced a new virus that preyed on misunderstanding and marginalisation.

Scientific advances have enabled people with access to treatment to live long and healthy lives with HIV. While advocacy and campaigning have raised awareness and understanding of what’s possible, and of the inequalities around the world. These continue to make accessing the tools and information to prevent HIV and the support and treatment to live healthily a challenge.

For most there is a lot to celebrate today. Alongside the worst of human nature we have also seen the best, with a uniquely strong global response to beat HIV. But in most places HIV is still shrouded in stigma and discrimination, and a cure for HIV remains stubbornly out of reach.

In this timeline you can explore about HIV; and read, see and hear how things have changed.
