HIV statistics fell, at least 50%, in 26 countries

HIV statistics are improving. Between 2001 and 2012, the number of HIV-positive individuals fell by at least 50% in 26 countries (16 of them in sub-Saharan Africa).

Despite this good news, it is estimated that there are 1.5 million newly diagnosed patients in this region of Africa, and 2.3 million worldwide (The Lancet 384; 272-279,2014).
