The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) has released their 2013 report, AIDS by the Numbers, which contains its latest data on the state of the epidemic globally and the progress made over the last decade. The report shows the world is coming closer to ending the AIDS epidemic but that significant challenges remain in getting to zero.
In 2012, an estimated:
- 35.3 million [32.2 million – 38.8 million] people globally were living with HIV
- 2.3 million [1.9 million – 2.7 million] people became newly infected with HIV
- 1.6 million [1.4 million – 1.9 million] people died from AIDS-related illnesses
AIDS by the Numbers presents a wealth of data on a range of topics, such as HIV infections, access to treatment and AIDS-related deaths, along with regional statistics on HIV.
