Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 and 2 (HIV-1 and HIV-2) infections have had a profound impact on morbidity and mortality worldwide. AIDS has evolved from an illness of men who have sex with men and of injection drug users into a large and expanding pandemic of heterosexually transmitted disease affecting men, women, and children across the globe. This chapter concentrates on the interaction between HIV-1, immune suppression and reconstitution, and opportunistic microbes such as , and species.
