This chapter begins with a description of the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS in Haiti. It then discusses HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. It argues that despite ongoing political difficulties and limited resources, Haiti has launched one of the world's most effective responses to the HIV epidemic. International funding has played a contributing role in these programmatic successes, but more recent advances would not have been possible without the strong network of institutions that were firmly established and already providing prevention and treatment services for HIV/AIDS at the time that funding became available.

Keywords: highly active antiretroviral therapy; HIV/AIDS; epidemiology; prevention; treatment
