[VIH/SIDA surveillane en Europe 2014]
HIV transmission remains of major concern in Europe, in particular in the eastern part of the WHO European Region. In 2014, more than 142 000 people were diagnosed with HIV, the highest number of newly diagnosed infections ever reported in one year. Of these, 77% were diagnosed in the East of the Region and 21% in the EU/EEA. The most recent surveillance data indicate that, despite significant efforts dedicated to the prevention and control of HIV, the number of new HIV diagnoses has not declined substantially in the western part of the Region and the EU/EEA and has more than doubled over the last decade in the East. In the Centre, while remaining lower than in the East and West, the number of new diagnoses has also more than doubled over the last decade.
