In Co?te d’Ivoire in 2018:

  • 460 000 people were living with HIV.
  • HIV incidence per 1000 uninfected—the number of new HIV infections among the uninfected population over one year—among all people of all ages was 0.7.
  • HIV prevalence—the percentage of people living with HIV—among adults (15–49 years) was 2.6%.
  • 17 000 people were newly infected with HIV.
  • 16 000 people died from an AIDS-related illness.

There has been progress in the number of AIDS-related deaths since 2010, with a 34% decrease, from 24 000 deaths to 16 000 deaths. The number of new HIV infections has decreased from 25 000 to 17 000 in the same period.

811彩票开户The 90–90–90 targets envision that, by 2020, 90% of people living with HIV will know their HIV status, 90% of people who know their HIV-positive status will be accessing treatment and 90% of people on treatment will have suppressed viral loads. In terms of all people living with HIV, reaching the 90–90–90 targets means that 81% of all people living with HIV are on treatment and 73% of all people living with HIV are virally suppressed. In 2018 in Co?te d’Ivoire:

  • 63% of people living with HIV knew their status.
  • 55% of people living with HIV were on treatment.
  • 41% of people living with HIV were virally suppressed.

811彩票开户Of all adults aged 15 years and over living with HIV, 56% were on treatment, while only 40% of children aged 0–14 years living with HIV were on treatment.

Ninety per cent of pregnant women living with HIV accessed antiretroviral medicine to prevent transmission of the virus to their baby, preventing 3300 new HIV infections among newborns. Early infant diagnosis―the percentage of HIV-exposed infants tested for HIV before eight weeks of age―stood at 56% in 2018.

811彩票开户Women are disproportionally affected by HIV in Co?te d’Ivoire: of the 430 000 adults living with HIV, 260 000 (60.47%) were women. New HIV infections among young women aged 15–24 years were more than triple those among young men: 3100 new infections among young women, compared to fewer than 1000 among young men. HIV treatment was higher among women than men, however, with 67% of adult women living with HIV on treatment, compared to 39% of adult men.

There is no specific legislation on same-sex sexual relations in Co?te d’Ivoire.

Only 26.63% of women and men 15–24 years old correctly identified ways of preventing the sexual transmission of HIV.

In 2017, the percentage of people living with HIV and tuberculosis who were being treated for both diseases was 55.2%, up from 45.6% in 2015.
