The response to HIV in Eastern Europe and Central Asia – Global AIDS update 2019
The number people newly infected with HIV in eastern Europe and central Asia increased by 29% between 2010 and 2018. Key populations are disproportionately affected, and they lack access to the HIV services they need. Despite expanded HIV testing services, antiretroviral therapy coverage in the region is lower than in most other regions. Large proportions of people diagnosed with HIV are not being linked to HIV treatment and care.
