HIV/AIDS

Updated: Mon, 3 Feb 2014

Introduction

About 35.3 million people were living with HIV in 2012, the majority in sub-Saharan Africa. Many don't know they are infected.

In the past decade, new infection rates have stabilised or fallen in most regions, except Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Middle East, North Africa and East Asia.

Women have been increasingly at risk of infection in poorer countries - mainly due to inequality, social pressures and lack of education about the virus.

Access to treatment has improved dramatically, but still only about a third of people who need antiretroviral drugs receive them.
