ECDC New report : Reversing the HIV epidemic: Europe needs to scale-up prevention, testing and treatment , 31 January 2017

HIV is still a significant public health problem in the EU/EEA.
In 2015, 29 747 new HIV infections were diagnosed in the EU/EEA, and the rate of new infections has not declined significantly over the last decade.

An estimated 810 000 persons were living with HIV in the EU/EEA in 2015 (0.2% of the adult population), however the prevalence is much higher in some countries and among key populations. Men who have sex with men are the key population within which new infections continue to increase. Migrants also remain disproportionately affected and although some of them are infected prior to arriving in the country where they are diagnosed, there is growing evidence that sub-groups are at risk of acquiring HIV after arrival in the EU/EEA
