HIV and AIDS in Europe: Test & protect!
ECDC estimates that 810 000 people are currently living with HIV in the EU/EEA – of which 122 000 (15%) do not know they are infected. Early diagnosis helps to prevent further transmission and lowers the risk of severe health complications.

In 2007, 49 % of those with a CD4 cell count reported at HIV diagnosis were diagnosed late (several years after infection).
