The near unanimous international consensus is that HIV was first discovered in 1983, by a team of scientists - led by the French virologist Luc Montagnier - at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France.
A rival claim was also made a group led by Dr Robert Charles Gallo (an American biomedical researcher) which published details of their discover in 1984.
In 1987 - following the intervention of the presidents of France and the United States - the two teams finally agreed to share the credit for the discovery of HIV.
Controversy surrounding the discovery of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) was intense after American researcher Robert Gallo and French scientist Luc Montagnier both claimed to have discovered it. The dispute was settled on a political level with both teams receiving equal credit.
