Haiti Reports 25000 New HIV Cases in 2013

Abstract
The Global Dispatch reported that Haiti recorded more than 25,000 new HIV diagnoses in 2013, which accounts for 12 percent of the total cases reported from 2000 to 2013. The majority of new HIV cases were among women at a ratio of 1.7:1, which is consistent with recent patterns. Approximately 20 percent of infected women also were pregnant. The highest HIV prevalence by age group was among adults in their 30s, followed by adults in their 40s, then adults in between 25 and 29 years old. Eleven percent of reported HIV infections were in children 14 years old and younger. More than 60 percent of infections were among heterosexuals for both men and women, while only 6 percent was reported among men who have sex with men. Condom usage was low, with only 16 percent of men and 17 percent of women reported using them regularly. Fewer than 10 percent of men and women reported knowingly having sex with a person with HIV.
