HIV/AIDS is a worldwide pandemic that touches every continent on earth and these HIV infection statistics put a numerical figure to the hearsay.
Specifically focusing on Asia, this infographic details that 5 million people are living with HIV in Asia and Pacific region, with the majority of new infections occurring in Nepal. The majority of these new infections are happening among those aged 25 and under, with those living with infection being men who have sex with men, sex industry workers and intravenous drug users.
