Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a specific group of diseases or conditions resulting from severe immunosuppression related to infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of new cases of AIDS in the United States has declined substantially in recent years. This is the first decrease since the epidemic began in the early 1980's. The availability of more effective treatments, such as combination drug therapies, has contributed greatly to this decline and to the decrease in deaths from AIDS. However, there is no notable drop in the spread of HIV infection. At this time, approximately one in 300 persons in the United States is infected with HIV. The leading modes of exposure continue to be homosexual sex and injecting drugs.

HIV/AIDS continues to spread rapidly in the Third World, particularly in parts of Asia and Africa. Exposure in those regions is primarily through heterosexual contact. The drugs used to combat HIV/AIDS in the United States are often too expensive or unavailable in Third World countries.

This compilation, an update of TB 91-9, is not intended to be a comprehensive bibliography. Based on the holdings of the Library of Congress, it is designed -- as the name of the series implies -- to put the reader "on target." Since any publication on HIV/AIDS cannot remain current for long, the section of the bibliography containing additional sources of information, especially online sources, should be particularly useful.
