AIDS Rate in Vietnam Shows No Signs of Slowing Down

November 15, 2001

Vietnam's AIDS rate has shown no sign of slowing down: About 9,000 new HIV cases were recorded across the country in the first nine months of 2001. Of the new cases, 84.6 percent were male. According to a report in the business newspaper Vietnam Investment Review, the number of HIV infections had reached 32,359 by December 2000. However, it is estimated that a much higher number, approximately 107,000, are in fact living with AIDS.
