205 Unique Data Sources From Around the Globe Added to U.S. Census HIV/AIDS Surveillance Data Base

From the U.S. Census:

The U.S. Census Bureau has added 205 unique sources of data from around the world to its HIV/AIDS Surveillance Data Base, providing easy access to key findings in one place.

The data were gleaned from presentations and posters showcased at the 22nd International AIDS Conference held in summer 2018 in Amsterdam. The meeting, which takes place every other year, is the largest global health conference convened to address a single health issue.

Some 16,000 people from 175 countries attended last year’s conference.  Three-quarters of them were from Western/Central Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa and North America.

Most of the new sources focus on a single country — and more than a third provide data on five nations in Sub-Saharan Africa: South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda, Tanzania and Malawi.
