UNAIDS AIDS Epidemic Update 2007
UNAIDS has just released its annual report on the status of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The new data include significant revisions to prior published estimates, due mostly to improved methodology and better data availability. In addition, there are now trend data available from 2001 to 2007 that help to paint a clearer picture of the epidemic's trajectory. Of note, the number of people estimated to be living with HIV/AIDS globally continues to increase, but the share of the global population estimated to be infected has leveled off. Also, new infections are now believed to have peaked in the late 1990s and declined somewhat in the last few years. Still, there are an estimated 6,800 people newly infected each day and sub-Saharan Africa continues to be the hardest hit region followed by the Caribbean.
If you have questions about the UNAIDS data or would like to schedule an expert phone consultation, please contact the CBMP Office.
