Illustration of the fight against AIDS.
A fight that has lasted for decades, and far from over.
This Tuesday, December 1, World AIDS Day, is an opportunity to look at the state of the HIV epidemic around the world.
How has it evolved over the past twenty years?
How many people are currently living with the virus?
And how many were there in 2000?
Are antiretroviral treatments much more widely used than twenty years ago?
How many people still contract the virus each year?
And how many die from it?
To find out, just look at the infographic made on the subject by our partner Statista:
