|Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) - Epidemiology Forecast to 2029|
|Published: February 15, 2021||Content info: 58 Pages||
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a retrovirus that attacks the immune system (NIH, 2020a). It infects, destroys, and impairs the cells of the immune system, mainly CD4-positive T-cells, which are key components of the cellular immune system (NIH, 2020a). Symptoms of HIV are similar to those of influenza, including fever, chills, muscle aches, and swollen lymph nodes (NIH, 2020b). If left untreated, HIV can progress into acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) (NIH, 2016). HIV is primarily transmitted through bodily fluids (such as blood and semen) via unprotected anal or vaginal sex, as well as through sharing needles, syringes, or other drug injection equipment (WHO, 2020). It can also be passed from mother to child perinatally through pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding (WHO, 2020).
GlobalData epidemiologists utilized comprehensive, country-specific HIV data from nationally representative public health surveillance systems and databases to arrive at a meaningful, in-depth epidemiological analysis and forecast for the total prevalence, diagnosed prevalence, and diagnosed incidence of HIV. Moreover, GlobalData epidemiologists provided detailed age- and sex segmentations, with additional segmentation by HBV coinfection, HCV coinfection, cases on ART, and the prophylactic population on PrEP. Finally, historical data were evaluated in all 7MM to strengthen the forecast by more accurately capturing changes in prevalence and incidence throughout the forecast period.
GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the total prevalent cases of HIV in the 7MM will increase from 2,134,989 cases in 2019 to 2,332,792 cases in 2029. Furthermore, GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the diagnosed prevalent cases of HIV in the 7MM will increase from 1,871,183 cases in 2019 to 2,068,647 cases in 2029. Finally, GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the diagnosed incident cases of HIV in the 7MM will increase from 65,128 cases in 2019 to 64,204 cases in 2029.
