Global AIDS Update 2018: Fact Sheet


This fact sheet from the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) accompanies the 2018 Global AIDS Update report, Miles to Go—Closing Gaps, Breaking Barriers, Righting Injustices. The web-based version provides a snapshot of the state of the world’s HIV/AIDS epidemic, with particular focus on the “90-90-90 targets,” which were launched in 2014 and seek to ensure that by the year 2020, 90 percent of all people living with HIV know their status, 90 percent of all people diagnosed with HIV are accessing sustained antiretroviral therapy (ART), and 90 percent of all people accessing ART are virally suppressed. It presents a high-level summary of the most current data about the global prevalence, transmission, mortality, and treatment of HIV/AIDS.
A downloadable, printable version also includes regional statistics.

The Global AIDS Update is published annually by UNAIDS. The 2018 report is accompanied by UNAIDS 2018 Data, a data publication which includes a global summary of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, regional overviews, and country data tables. Several videos, core epidemiology slides, slides of the report’s figures, and shareable social media graphics are also available. Additional data resources can be found at AIDSinfo, a data portal hosted by UNAIDS, including interactive graphs, figures, and data tables; downloadable country and regional profiles; historical datasets; and an interactive atlas that layers data from multiple indicators and offers links to datasets and U.N. resources for key populations.
