Ending the Epidemic

About 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV today, and one out of every seven people with HIV is unaware of their infection.

Carolina’s faculty, staff and students are working to reduce those numbers. They’re attacking HIV through research, education and outreach to improve the lives of patients, prevent transmission and eradicate the virus entirely.
