The article discusses the outbreak of AIDS in Brazil. It can be described according to three evolutionary phases. The initial phase was mostly characterised by infection of homosexuals. The second phase involved the growth of the number of cases related to transmission through the usage of injectable drugs and dissemination among heterosexuals. The third phase is characterised by the growth of AIDS cases among women, geographical expansion towards the inner part of the country, and increase of cases among the poor.
