EDITORIAL

Anti retroviral therapy has reduced the number of AIDs related deaths and due to greater access to treatments mortality has been reduced both in the developed and developing countries.
Various stakeholders like researchers, medical practitioners, governments, NGOs, patients etc. are contributing in the vision of world with zero new HIV infection and zero AIDS related deaths.
There are increasing trends towards use of ethnomedicine to manage HIV/AIDS but concrete scientific evidences and data are required to make it part of official HIV/AIDS related treatment policies. People with HIV/ AIDS in developing countries cannot afford high cost of antiretroviral therapy (ART). Several African nations currently do promote traditional medicines for the treatment of HIV and associated symptoms. Ministry of Health, South Africa, is actively promoting the use of traditional medicines with antiretroviral treatments. Plant derived anti-HIV compounds offer great promise. The review in this issue describes plant derived chemicals such as diterpenes, triterpenes, biflavonoids, coumarins, caffeic acid tetramers, hypericin, gallotannins, galloylquinic acids, curcumins, michellamines, and limonoids which can be part of treatment. These active compounds acted on various stages of the HIV life cycle.
