Thursday 1st December 2011

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the WHO Regional Office for Europe released their joint publication HIV/AIDS surveillance in Europe 2010 on 30 November. The new data raise concern about the continuing transmission of HIV in Europe although the steady decrease of AIDS cases continued in 2010 with 4666 reported cases in the EU/EEA region. This constitutes a decrease of nearly 50% in reported AIDS cases from 2004 to 2010.
