          HIV is a significant health concern worldwide, and combating this disease is an important millennium development goal formulated at the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000. A target was set to halt HIV/AIDS by 2015 and reverse its spread (Skolnik 2016). Brazil sets a high standard of protocol for the prevention and treatment of HIV and AIDS, not only in Latin America, but on a global level. The prevalence of HIV in Brazil, Latin America, and worldwide are examined, along with HIV prevention and treatment strategies in Brazil. Studies that have been conducted in other Latin American countries are reviewed that imply the critical role education and community organizations have in combating the disease which focus on key populations and high-risk groups. The impact of the prevention and treatment strategies in Brazil demonstrate the strong political and ethical commitment Brazil has towards the health of their population.is very rare, CRP response in a patient was significant.
