New HIV infections

What does it mean ?

This indicator is defined as the number of new HIV infections per 1,000 person-years among the population that is not infected, aged 15-49 years. This is the number of new cases per population at risk in a given time period, referred to as the incidence rate. The uninfected population is the total population minus the people living with HIV.

Why does it matter ?

The rate of people newly infected by HIV over time is a measure of progress toward preventing onward transmission of HIV. Determining the number of new HIV infections is important for monitoring epidemic trends and the dynamics of a population. This is an indicator for monitoring Sustainable Development Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages; Target 3.3: By 2030, end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and combat hepatitis, water-borne diseases and other communicable diseases. It is also an indicator for monitoring the Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' Health (2016-2030).

How is it collected ?

The preferred sources of data are household or key population surveys with HIV incidence-testing, as well as spectrum modelling surveillance systems. Other possible data sources are regular surveillance systems among key populations. It is preferred to directly measure at the population level. If this is not possible, countries rely on indirect measures or the triangulation of direct and indirect methods.

In the data source, values for Egypt (1990-2001) and Tunisia (1990-1994) are reported as <0.01%, AHStats displays these values as 0.01%.

More information on calculations

Methods for monitoring incidence can vary depending on the epidemic setting and are typically categorised either as direct or indirect measures. Direct measurement at the population level is preferred but is often difficult to obtain. Most countries rely on indirect measures or the triangulation of direct and indirect methods. Direct measures include longitudinal follow-up and repeat testing of individuals who do have HIV infection, and estimation using a laboratory test for recent HIV infection and clinical data in the population. Indirect measures most frequently depend on estimates determined by mathematical modelling tools, such as Spectrum or the Asian Epidemic Model.
