HIV will never cure itself but, with your help, we just might.

There are 36.7 million lives that are impacted by HIV globally. Each year, over 2 million people become newly infected, and 1 million die of HIV-related causes. Here in San Diego County, HIV continues to be a major public health threat, with one new diagnosis occurring every 18 hours.

Despite significant advances, there remain enormous real world challenges in the prevention, rapid diagnosis, and care of HIV.

The HIV Institute has fought HIV domestically and abroad for the past 20 years, bringing breakthroughs from the research laboratory bench to patients’ bedsides. The HIV Institute provides vital funding to researchers and clinicians who are saving and improving lives with cutting-edge research and treatments. But we need your help to support cure-focused research that is bringing fresh perspectives, innovation, and renewed drive to the HIV/AIDS field!

Your tax-deductible gift to the UC San Diego HIV Institute will support the lifesaving research that is key to finding new treatments, better prevention methods, and eventually a cure. With your help, we can create an AIDS-free generation!

From every dollar donated, 94 cents will go directly into programs at the forefront of ending the AIDS epidemic! Learn more about ways you can support these vital efforts by browsing our giving opportunities or emailing us. Learn more about our case for support by clicking here.
