In a series of 5 essays and 5 activities, students investigate the HIV virus and pandemic. They learn about the structure, function and replication cycle of HIV virus particles; how diseases spread, and act as epidemiologists while using real data to track the spread of HIV/AIDS around the world.

This slide set is designed for use with activities found in The Science of HIV/AIDS Teacher's Guide.
