Excerpt
More than 1.7 million [1.3 million–2.2 million] million people are living with HIV in Latin America. In 2004, around 95 000 [73 000–120 000] people died of AIDS, and 240 000 [170 000–430 000] were newly infected. Among young people 15–24 years of age, an estimated 0.5% [0.4–0.9%] of women and 0.8% [0.6–1.3%] of men were living with HIV at the end of 2004. Two countries in this region—Guatemala and Honduras—have national adult HIV prevalence of over 1%. But lower prevalence in other countries disguises the fact that serious, localized epidemics are also underway in several other countries—not least Brazil, which accounts for more than one third of the people living with HIV in Latin America.
