Current Opinion in HIV and AIDS was launched in 2006. It is one of a successful series of review journals whose unique format is designed to provide a systematic and critical assessment of the literature as presented in the many primary journals. The fields of HIV and AIDS are divided into nine sections that are reviewed once a year. Each section is assigned one or two Section Editors, leading authorities in the area, who identify the most important topics at that time. Here we are pleased to introduce the Section Editor for this issue.
