This review article charts the rise of the new discipline of HIV prevention science: a combination of different yet complementary approaches that tackles the HIV/AIDS epidemic on a broad scale, from community-based to global activities.

The authors explain that the various elements each involve their own social, clinical and scientific dimensions, and include behavioural measures (such as condom use and voluntary counselling and testing) as well as the use of antiretroviral drugs for prevention of HIV transmission.
