HIV: consider the transmission

Between 30 and 50% of people living with HIV/AIDS in the EU are unaware they are infected.
Between 30 and 50% of people living with HIV/AIDS in the EU are unaware they are infected.
 

The rate climbs up to 70% in some countries neighboring the EU. The rate of HIV spread ranges from 0.1 to 1.2% in Europe.

The main ways of transmission vary from location to location. In the European Union, AIDS is transmitted mainly through heterosexual sex and sex between men.

In neighboring European countries, HIV transmission is primarily related to drug injection (57%). In countries of the European Union, most new cases involve men who have sex with men (39%).

The transmission of AIDS through heterosexual transmission is growing in several European countries: 40% of such contamination has been observed in people from countries with generalized epidemics.

To recall, 50,000 new cases were diagnosed in the European Union and neighboring countries in 2007, and approximately 2 million people living with HIV/AIDS, according to a 2008 report published by the UN.

European Commission launches plan to fight against AIDS in the European Union and neighboring countries, planned between 2009 and 2013.
