World AIDS Day

Read articles and chapters, specially selected by our editors, from across SpringerNature 

December 1st is World AIDS Day. Progress around the treatment of HIV / AIDS has been phenomenal in recent years, with life-expectancies improving substantially, especially if diagnosed and treated quickly. However, the fight to reach the goal of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination against sufferers and zero AIDS related deaths continues. 

For this reason and to commemorate this occasion, we collected the leading and most recent research published across SpringerNature's quality publications. 

All articles & chapters are free to read until December 10, 2018. Open access articles are freely available at any time.
