- The HIV care continuum shows
where improvements are needed.
In 2011, of the 1.2 million people living with HIV,
86 percent were diagnosed,
40 percent were engaged in care,
37 percent were prescribed antiretroviral medication
and 30 percent were virally suppressed.
Doctors, nurses and other health care providers
can play vital roles in improving these numbers.
