Health Data: Annual Update for HIV/AIDS Surveillance Data Base
From the US Census:
This annual update of the interactive global resource on the prevalence of HIV infection and AIDS cases and deaths coincides with the 21st International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa. First developed in 1987, this marks 30 years of database releases.
The HIV/AIDS Surveillance Data Base is a compilation of information from widely scattered small-scale surveys on HIV infection and the AIDS pandemic in population groups in developing countries. The database brings together information from medical and scientific literature, presentations at international conferences, and the press. Users can easily retrieve available information for groups in a selected country and print or save to a .pdf or .csv file. The HIV/AIDS Surveillance Data Base includes all countries and areas of the world with at least 5,000 population, with the exception of Canada, the United States and U.S. territories.
