Division of Infectious Diseases & HIV Medicine
The prevention and control of infectious diseases is a critical component for protecting the health of any community. The global economy, international travel and migration all contribute to the potential for infectious diseases to spread to new populations. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control reports that 160,000 Americans die each year with an infectious disease as the underlying cause of death, and infectious illnesses account for 25 percent of all physician visits each year. In addition, there are currently an estimated one million individuals in the U.S. with HIV, with 40,000 more people being infected every year.

The Division of Infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine comprises several clinical and research programs that provide both treatment and prevention of infectious diseases, including HIV. The division is expanding the translational research program, and investigating cutting-edge technologies and therapeutic treatments for the management and prevention of HIV and other infectious diseases.
