Thirty years after the discovery of HIV, the epidemic is still a major health concern with no cure in sight. Globally there are regions with concentrated epidemics where high risk groups drive the HIV incidence rates whereas regions with a generalized epidemic have the population at large at risk of HIV acquisition. Current HIV prevention efforts such as HIV testing and counseling, STI treatment and condom use have not been entirely successful. New biomedical interventions have recently shown to be efficacious in the prevention of HIV in specific populations. It is evident that, depending on the population groups driving the epidemic, countries need to take stock of their HIV epidemic and prepare an appropriate response using a combination of current and new biomedical HIV prevention interventions to minimize HIV incidence
