This book has been written with an aim to impart knowledge about AIDS and a realisation of the challenge that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) poses to us. The book briefly covers different aspects from the origin of HIV and AIDS to the most recent developments in AIDS diagnosis and the newer vaccines. AIDS research has attracted some of the finest brains among doctors and scientists of the world; and yet, an effective cure eludes us. Progress in vaccine development seems to take two steps forward, but one-.and-a-half steps backward. Under these circumstances, prevention is the best cure. The book provides the necessary knowledge, but it cannot supply the weapon to fight the challenge of HIV / AIDS. Indeed, that weapon-a mind prepared to apply the knowledge-rests with the reader.

Dr Khorshed M. Pavri, former Director, National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune, was a member of the WHO expert panel on viral diseases.

At present, she is working as the Project Director at ICMR Centre for AIDS Research and Control (CARC), Mumbai. She is also the editor of the quarterly journal, CARC Calling.
