HIV around the world

HIV has reached every corner of the globe although some regions are more heavily affected than others. The vast majority of people living with HIV live in sub-Saharan Africa.

The scale of the epidemic has demanded substantial political and financial commitment from international organisations, donor countries and domestic governments.

Here, we give you the latest global statistics, an overview of the global HIV response to date, and identify the major trends in the different regions and countries.
