This chapter provides an overview of the epidemiology of HIV infection and evaluates HIV programs in developing countries. It first reports recent estimates of the extent of HIV infection and AIDS worldwide and identifies the biological, behavioral, and economic factors that influence the spread of the epidemic. It then compares the severity of the AIDS epidemic in different countries using data on the prevalence of HIV infection among high-risk populations. The results of existing HIV program evaluations are then summarized. Finally, the chapter evaluates the potential uses of modeling in HIV prevention.
