As we herald into the 21st century, the quality of life and the repertoire of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) have considerably improved. However, considerable work is still needed to educate the population about primary and secondary prevention modalities.

We aim to review high-sensitivity C-reactive protein as a potential biomarker in this regard.
