This chapter begins with a brief history of the emergence of AIDS and HIV. It then discusses the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART).

The International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care's (IAPAC) historic symposium in 2006 entitled, 'Decade of HAART', from which this book of based, is described.
