Total number of new HIV infections in Italy 2008-2019

In Italy, the total number of newly diagnosed HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infections peaked in 2012, when 4,162 new cases were recorded. Thereafter, the number gradually decreased until 2019, when 2,531 individuals were newly diagnosed with HIV. This virus is responsible for AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), which is a condition that remarkably weakens the immune system, making the contraction of diseases much more likely.

HIV incidence worldwide

In 2018, roughly 38 million people suffered from HIV worldwide. This was an increase compared to the previous years. In fact, the number of people living with HIV steadily grew from 2000 to 2019. Nonetheless, the number of new HIV infections decreased over time.

HIV epidemiology in Italy

In Italy, Lombardy and Lazio were the regions with the greatest number of people newly diagnosed with HIV in 2019. The virus was mainly prevalent among males aged 30 to 49 years old . In 2019, 549 men in the age group 30-39 and 498 ones from 40 to 49 years old were newly diagnosed with HIV.
