Till now, there is not taken exactly prevention on this virus. Although some antiviral drugs are produced which make a preventive barrier out of the lymphocytes cells of patient’s blood but there is no way to kill the virus properly. The present work was carried out to find the prevalence of HIV in East Region of India. A total 717 patients were screened for the presence of HIV in their blood by various ELISA methods. It has been concluded that out of 717 patients 219 patients were infected with HIV and in between 15 to 45 ages, the infection rate is high both in male and female as increasing their age and increasing to their age the infection rate of HIV of male is increases where as female is decreases. So prevalence of HIV is an emerging reality in East Region of India among middle age and male persons.
