Citation analysis for HIV testing: increasing uptake and effectiveness in the European Union
Infographic: HIV and AIDS in Europe 2017
Europe experiences a persistent HIV epidemic, with only little changes in notifications during the last decade in the EU/EEA. One reason for this: an estimated 120 000 Europeans are living with undiagnosed HIV in the EU/EEA, which means that about 1 in 5 (15 %) of those living with HIV are not aware of their status. And it takes around three years from HIV infection to diagnosis.
Infographic: HIV late Diagnosis - 2017 data
In the EU/EEA, almost every second HIV diagnosis happened at a late stage in 2017. This means diagnosis several years after infection.
In 2007, 49 % of those with a CD4 cell count reported at HIV diagnosis were diagnosed late (several years after infection).
