Estimated HIV

Apr 16, 2003

What is the source of information in estimating the number of HIV infection worldwide? It is just to do with the projected data or is there any mechanism developed?

Response from Mr. Kull

I do not have a thorough understanding of how estimates of worldwide AIDS cases and HIV infection cases are arrived at since different organizations will use different techniques. For example, UNAIDS, a primary source for worldwide statistics, develops monitoring and evaluation tools that can be used by different national offices around the world. Reports developed should distinguish between projected and actual statistics.


Plz help me. i'm still worried sick
