The problem of public awareness about the ways of transmission of HIV (including from mother to child), as well as ways to prevent infection is extremely relevant. Despite the efforts of scientists around the world, a vaccine against HIV has not yet been invented, and prevention remains the only means of containing the epidemic. Information on ways to spread and how to protect against HIV infection is available to the public. Nevertheless, the epidemic is growing. Currently, medicine does not have the means to cure an HIV-infected person. This article analyzes the awareness of the population of Tashkent city on HIV infection, which showed a low level of awareness. In this regard, HIV awareness-raising activities are of particular importance in order to raise awareness and develop a tolerant attitude towards people living with HIV. Objective: To assess the level of public awareness about HIV infection. Material and Methods: The survey was conducted among the population of Tashkent city by online survey.
