Latest epidemiological trends - UNAIDS 2009

  • Sub-Saharan Africa remains the region most heavily affected by HIV worldwide, accounting for over two thirds (67%) of all people living with HIV and for nearly three (72%) of AIDS-related deaths in 2008.  

  • An estimated 1.9 million [1.6 million–2.2 million] people were newly infected with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa in 2008, bringing to 22.4 million [20.8 million–24.1 million] the number of people living with HIV.  

  • In 2008, more than 14 million children in sub-Saharan Africa had lost one or both parents to AIDS.  

  • Sub-Saharan Africa’s epidemics vary significantly from country to country—with most appearing to have stabilized, although often at very high levels, particularly in Southern Africa.

  • The nine countries in southern Africa continue to bear a disproportionate share of the global AIDS burden—each of them has an adult HIV prevalence greater than 10%
