¡Good news! HIV positive treated with antiretrovirals has increased

HIV positive treated with antiretrovirals has been increasing, particularly, where the infection is more extended. In 2012, there were around 35.3 million people living with HIV, 70.8% of them in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly in South Africa. However, the good news is that the number of people receiving treatment in these countries has increased, since in 2012 there were 9.7 million HIV patients in developing countries being treated with antiretroviral drugs (The Lancet 384; 258-271,2014).
