The MPIDB also supports and conducts both domestic and international research into the epidemiology, natural history, pathogenesis, transmission, treatment, and prevention of HIV infection and its complications in infants, children, adolescents, pregnant women, mothers, women of childbearing age, and the family unit as a whole. These research areas are relevant to BV because BV increases a woman's likelihood of acquiring HIV/AIDS and passing HIV/AIDS on to a partner. In addition, because BV increases a woman's likelihood of acquiring HIV/AIDS, her fetus is at increased risk.
