Note: This table provides estimates related to the global HIV/AIDS epidemic as of December 2010.  To calculate adult HIV prevalence, the estimated number of adults (15–49 years) living with HIV in 2009 was divided by the 2009 adult population. The estimated number of people living with HIV include all people with HIV infection, whether or not they have developed symptoms of AIDS, in 2009. The number of orphans due to AIDS reflects the estimated number of children (0–17 years) in 2009 who have lost one or both parents to AIDS. For country where no recent data was available, no country-specific estimates are listed in the table.  Source: Global report: UNAIDS Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic 2010, Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).

* Countries that comprise the PEPFAR Caribbean Regional Operational Plan.  Belize also receives PEPFAR funding through the Central America Regional platform.

** Countries that comprise the PEPFAR Central America Regional Operational Plan.

*** Countries that comprise the PEPFAR Central Asia Regional Operational Plan.

Table explanation: This table provides an overview of the global HIV/AIDS epidemic in PEPFAR operating units, organized by region of PEPFAR investment. Only countries/regional platforms preparing PEPFAR operational plans, reflecting most of the PEPFAR country investments, are included in the table above.
