Overview

811彩票开户In India in 2017:

  • 2 100 000 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 0.1.
  • HIV prevalence—the percentage of people living with HIV—among adults (15–49 years) was 0.2%.
  • 88 000 people were newly infected with HIV.
  • 69 000 people died from an AIDS-related illness.

There has been progress in the number of AIDS-related deaths since 2010, with a 56% decrease, from 160 00 deaths to 69 000 deaths. The number of new HIV infections has decreased, from 120 000 to 88 000 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 2017 in India:

  • 79% of people living with HIV knew their status.
  • 56% of people living with HIV were on treatment.

Of all adults aged 15 years and over living with HIV, 56% were on treatment.

Sixty per cent of pregnant women living with HIV accessed antiretroviral medicine to prevent transmission of the virus to their baby, preventing 3500 new HIV infections among newborns. Early infant diagnosis―the percentage of HIV-exposed infants tested for HIV before eight weeks of age―stood at 23% in 2017.

811彩票开户Of the 2 100 000 adults living with HIV, 880 000 (41.9%) were women. HIV treatment was higher among women than men, with 63% of adult women living with HIV on treatment, compared to 50% of adult men.

Only 26.17% 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 33.4%, down from 36.3% in 2015.
