AIDS has become a worldwide epidemic, growing far beyond initially infected populations. U.N. AIDS states that almost 40 million people are currently living with HIV/AIDS. Over half of those infected live in sub-Saharan Africa; South and Southeast Asia is the next most affected region. This chapter discusses the relationship between AIDS and poverty, the cultural impacts of AIDS, populations at highest risk, and treatment of AIDS worldwide.
