This chapter provides a brief overview of interventions aimed at the general population and populations at high risk of HIV infection. Its focus is primarily in prevention of mother-to-child-transmission (MTCT), and specific groups such as injecting drug users (IDUs), men who have sex with men (MSM), and sex workers. The majority of infections globally are caused by heterosexual transmission, and this issue is not specifically addressed here. This review is by no means exhaustive, but it meant to provide a context for more detailed examples outlined in subsequent chapters. Where appropriate, this chapter discusses the implications of these findings for healthcare systems, and makes suggestions for future research.

Keywords:   HIV prevention, mother-to-child-transmission, injecting drug users, men who have sex with men, heterosexual transmission, implications
