In the absence of a vaccine, prevention represents the major hope for limiting the spread of HIV-1 infection. Prevention efforts focus on behavioral change techniques, widespread availability and use of condoms, and substance abuse management and treatment. Secondary prevention programs require behavioral interventions to help infected people cope with their illness. Behavioral interventions, such as cognitive behavioral stress management and aerobic exercise, and pharmacologic treatment have begun to improve the management of HIV-1 spectrum disease.
